Powerful, beautifully acted film about vicious South African hoodlum (Presley Chweneyagae) who shoots a woman and steals her car, not realizing her baby is in the back seat, and how his life is transformed by the experience. Though the squalid underworld milieu, and the periodic acts of violence will not be to every taste, writer-director Gavin Hood's adaptation of an Athol Fugard novel ultimately becomes into an incredibly moving experience with a truly redemptive ending sure to bring a lump to the throat of the patient viewer. Subtitles. Pervasive rough and occasional crude language, some profanity, two violent killings, a shooting, brief breastfeeding images, gambling. 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. Under 17 requires accompanying parent or adult guardian.
