Friends With Money
Source: Catholic News Service
Perceptive comedy-drama set in Los Angeles about three couples (Catherine Keener and Jason Isaacs, Frances McDormand and Simon McBurney, Joan Cusack and Greg Germann) and their single underachieving friend (a particularly fine Jennifer Aniston) who serves as a catalyst for the women to rethink their own relationships and priorities. Director-writer Nicole Holofcener skillfully balances the various plotlines, painting an accurate view of contemporary society as she explores the themes of marriage, career, relationships, self-esteem, mortality, facing life's realities and yes, money. Pervasive conversational rough and crude language and expressions, some profanity, a permissive view of premarital sex, implied off-color sexual activity, a running gag about a character's presumed homosexual orientation and a marital breakup. 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.
