Captivating film set in Scotland about a loving single mother (Emily Mortimer), who pretends to her 9-year-old deaf son, Frankie (Jack McElhone), that his father -- whom the boy has never seen -- is simply away at sea, and forges letters purporting to be from the absent father, then pays a stranger (Gerard Butler) to pose as the father for a day. Shona Auerbach directs a beautifully written story that is immensely appealing, sensitively acted, and sure to bring a lump to the throat, resulting in superlative entertainment for adults and older adolescents. A few profane and rough words, a single lewd gesture from a child, some mature thematic material and some alcohol use. The USCCB Office for Film & Broadcasting classification is A-III -- adults. The Motion Picture Association of America rating is PG-13 -- parents are strongly cautioned. Some material may be inappropriate for children under 13.
