Hard Word, The
Source: Catholic News Service
Hard-boiled drama about three Aussie brothers (Guy Pearce, Damien Richardson and Joel Edgerton) recently paroled, who are conned into one last heist job by their crooked attorney (Robert Taylor). While director Scott Roberts injects some fresh down-under spice into a shopworn genre, the film, which boasts a better-than-average script and some nuanced performances, is undermined by its smug, wrongful assertion that crime does pay. Much graphic violence, recurring rough language and profanities, two instances of fleeting nudity, as well as an implied sexual encounter. The USCCB Office for Film & Broadcasting classification is O -- morally offensive. The Motion Picture Association of America rating is R -- restricted.
