Not suitable for families

The movie itself is good in many ways but certainly NOT appropriate to watch with kids. I cannot recommend this to anyone below 18. Movie starts out with a scene of a mother who commits suicide by drowning which is witnessed by her daughter who narrates throughout the movie. It shows her mother going into the water and the next scene is her body floating and a group of women who rescue her. These scenes can be disturbing to some. There is another scene of the husband climbing on the wife to make love. Then in yet another scene the wife has an adulterous affair with a young man and he is undressing her, both naked in bed and kissing, caressing etc.,although full nude bodies are not shown it is plenty enough to see that they are naked and he is on top of her etc. Acting is good though and bad language is almost minimal. There is a woman who smokes, some scenes depicting racial slurs and a scene where the family is watching the 911 attack in New York as the 2nd plane flies into the 2nd tower. Overall conservatively speaking this is best for adults who like movies that explore cultural and social issues.
