Down in the Valley
Source: Catholic News Service
Offbeat but quite interesting story of easygoing South Dakota ranch hand (an impressive Edward Norton) who romances the much-younger, rebellious teenage daughter (Evan Rachel Wood) of a San Fernando Valley police officer (David Morse), and befriends her painfully shy younger brother (Rory Culkin), against the father's wishes. Writer-director David Jacobson's initial "young lovers" romance shifts tone dramatically midway with a shocking twist, and becomes a suspenseful drama that pays homage to elements from the classic Westerns of John Ford and Howard Hawks. Considerable profanity, rough language and crude expressions, a couple of shootings, gun use by a minor, intense domestic discord, premarital sex and nongraphic sexual encounters, and drug use. 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.
