Far-fetched and overlong drama about a guilt-ridden loner (Will Smith) intent on atoning for a terrible sin by giving life-altering assistance to seven needy strangers, including a blind pianist (Woody Harrelson), a Latina mother (Elpidia Carrillo) being physically abused by her boyfriend, and an artistic printer (Rosario Dawson) suffering from heart disease, for whom he falls. Director Gabriele Muccino's snail's-pace exploration of altruistic and romantic love includes the endorsement of an unwise and sinful choice driven by confused idealism, and requires careful interpretation by mature viewers. Suicide theme, nongraphic premarital sexual activity, a few sexual references, occasional crude and crass language, and a couple of uses of profanity. 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 PG-13—parents strongly cautioned; some material may be inappropriate for children under 13.
