Engrossing domestic drama about a blue-collar widower (Anthony LaPaglia) coping with his two teenage boys -- one who announces he's leaving home (Aaron Stanford), and the other a troublesome, moody student (Mark Webber) -- and the compassionate woman (Allison Janney) who moves into a nearby house and reaches out to them. Writer-director Josh Sternfeld, in his feature-film debut, has crafted a sensitive slice-of-life story that rings absolutely true. The performances, especially LaPaglia's, are extraordinary, and a good pro-family message and a hopeful ending give a somber story a positive uplift. Rough and crude language, a couple of brief violent episodes, tobacco use. The USCCB Office for Film & Broadcasting classification is A-III -- adults. The Motion Picture Association of America rating is R -- restricted.
