Things We Lost in the Fire
Source: Catholic News Service
Captivating exploration of the bond between a young widow (Halle Berry) and her late husband's (David Duchovny) best friend (Benicio Del Toro), a charismatic recovering junkie who also influences the lives of her son (Micah Berry) and daughter (Alexis Llewellyn), her brother (Omar Benson Miller), a fellow addict (Alison Lohman) and a generous neighbor (John Carroll Lynch). The film, as directed by Susanne Bier, moves with dexterity from moments of clever humor to painfully deep emotion and features striking cinematography in which detailed close-ups beautifully mirror the script's intimacy. Partial rear nudity, nongraphic sexual activity, much rough and some crude language, one use of profanity and drug use. The USCCB Office for Film & Broadcasting classification is A-III -- adults. The Motion Picture Association of America rating is R -- restricted. Under 17 requires accompanying parent or adult guardian.
