A schizophrenic and sometimes violent man (Damian Lewis) wanders a New York bus terminal looking for the daughter he claims was abducted, and later befriends a troubled mother (Amy Ryan) and her 7-year-old daughter (Abigail Breslin) at a transient motel. Writer-director Lodge Kerrigan's grainy, cinema-verite-style film has an ugly milieu, sordid situations and tedious stretches in its first half, though the ending is intensely moving and redemptive. Lewis' performance is a tour de force, with first-class support by Ryan, Breslin and Tina Holmes. Profanity and rough language, a violent episode, an unrestrained sexual encounter, and alcohol and drug use. The USCCB Office for Film & Broadcasting classification is L -- limited adult audience, films whose problematic content many adults would find troubling. The Motion Picture Association of America rating is R -- restricted.
