Rails & Ties
Source: Catholic News Service
Intimate, moving drama in which a terminally ill woman (Marcia Gay Harden) and her emotionally repressed railroad engineer-husband (Kevin Bacon) find their failing relationship revived when they surreptitiously shelter a boy (Miles Heizer) whose mentally ill single mother (Bonnie Root) committed suicide by parking in front of the husband's train. Director Alison Eastwood, in her first feature, balances a plot that tugs shamelessly at every heartstring with an understated approach that generally forestalls sentimentality. Problematic religious elements, upper female nudity, tense accident scene, one use of the f-word, two crude words, one crass term and one use of profanity. Acceptable for older teens. The USCCB Office for Film & Broadcasting classification is A-III -- adults. The Motion Picture Association of America rating is PG-13 -- parents strongly cautioned. Some material may be inappropriate for children under 13.
