Human Stain, The
Source: Catholic News Service
Affecting drama based on the Philip Roth novel in which an aging, newly widowed professor (Anthony Hopkins) quits his job in disgrace over an unintended racial slight and becomes involved in an affair with a tragedy-scarred divorcee (Nicole Kidman) half his age who is being stalked by her ex-husband (Ed Harris). Director Robert Benton explores the flawed humanity of an academic who has long lived a lie but who seeks redemption in caring for a brittle but vulnerable woman searching for escape through mindless sexual encounters. Sexual affairs, brief full female nudity, much rough language, boxing ring violence, a racial epithet and minimal profanity and crass expressions. The USCCB Office for Film & Broadcasting classification is A-IV -- adults, with reservations. The Motion Picture Association of America rating is R -- restricted.
