OK for kids 13+

A slow but rewarding drama

What Parents Need to Know

Parents need to know that older teens and adults are most likely to be drawn to this slow-paced, character-driven film, which is chock full of adult themes: A child thinks he's responsible for the fire that destroys his father's business; quarreling over seemingly unimportant matters threatens to tear a family apart.

  • Families can talk about their own family history. Have an old family photo album on hand and use the film as a way to discuss family stories and family members who are no longer with them.
