    Chicago Sun-Times Roger Ebert

    A feeling movie, a mood movie, an evocation of the kind of interaction we sometimes hunger for.

    Turns the tricks of psychology into duplicitous high play.

For Families provided by Common Sense Media

Iffy for 16+

Great characters, but for older teens and up.

What Parents Need to Know

Parents need to know that this movie has a lot of mature material, including nudity and sexual references and drug abuse. Mature teens will appreciate the struggles of the teen-age characters to find a way to feel good enough about themselves to enter into a relationship, and the disconnect between the words and the feelings of Mumford's teen-age patient.

  • Families can talk about the role that families play in the way each member sees himself, and how the families in the movie help or hurt each other.
