Somber drama in which a newly released convict (Billy Bob Thornton) who judges himself irredeemable seeks out the needy sister (Holly Hunter) of the youth he impulsively killed 23 years earlier and is taken in by a mysterious self-styled pastor (Morgan Freeman) who pushes him to help those around him. Writer-director Ed Solomon's sorrowful, character-driven film explores accountability and the consequences of violence, ultimately suggesting the hope of redemption for its troubled characters. Recurring rough language, minimal profanity, an implied sexual encounter and some crass expressions. The USCCB Office for Film & Broadcasting classification is A-III -- adults. The Motion Picture Association of America rating is R -- restricted.
