Breaking and Entering
Source: Catholic News Service
So-so drama about a London architect (Jude Law) -- living with a Swedish-American divorcee (Robin Wright Penn) and her autistic 13-year-old daughter -- who has an affair with the widowed Bosnian mother (Juliette Binoche) of a troubled boy who has broken into the architect's inner-city office, prompting a re-evaluation of his life and relationships against the city's evolving cultural landscape. Writer-director Anthony Minghella's film features good performances, but interweaves its themes of immigration, motherhood and economic disparity into a plot that's not terribly compelling, though its moral resolution involves forgiveness and reconciliation. Some rough and crude language and profanity, upper female nudity, a prostitute character, a couple of nongraphic sexual encounters, some sexual banter, infidelity and a condom reference. 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.
