Romance & Cigarettes
Source: Catholic News Service
Disjointed, extremely raunchy blue-collar comedy-drama, with songs, about an adulterous construction worker (James Gandolfini) torn between his wife (Susan Sarandon) and foul-mouthed mistress (Kate Winslet). Writer-director John Turturro has assembled a blue-chip cast (also including Christopher Walken, Mandy Moore, Steve Buscemi, Mary-Louise Parker, Eddie Izzard and Elaine Stritch) but their good performances, a solidly moral resolution and even some positive church elements are far outweighed by the relentless crude humor and vulgarity. Strong gratuitous sexual content, including a graphic encounter without nudity, adultery, some profanity, rough language, scatological elements, much domestic discord and a fistfight with blood. The USCCB Office for Film & Broadcasting classification is O -- morally offensive. The Motion Picture Association of America rating is R -- restricted. Under 17 requires accompanying parent or adult guardian.
