Pieces of April
Source: Catholic News Service
Tender drama about a young woman (Katie Holmes) who, at the promptings of her live-in boyfriend (Derek Luke), tries to mend the tattered relationship with her cancer-stricken mother (Patricia Clarkson) by hosting Thanksgiving dinner at her dilapidated New York City tenement, only to discover that her oven is not working. While at first glance the simple premise appears not to have enough narrative stuffing to prove engaging, director Peter Hedges serves up an emotionally satisfying meal, imparting a positive message about family and forgiveness. Some rough and crude language, a few instances of profanity, a scene involving marijuana, as well as some images of nudity. The USCCB Office for Film & Broadcasting classification is A-III -- adults. The Motion Picture Association of America rating is PG-13 -- parents are strongly cautioned. Some material may be inappropriate for children under 13.
