Promising directorial debut

May contain some spoilers. Its not a great movie but I think its good and more than just nice to look at. Colin Firth gives a great performance which alone is worth seeing this film for. Although not all of Ford's visual techniques work he shows a lot of promise for a first time director, I'm interested to see what he does next. In terms of the the things that typically earn a film an R rating, sex, nudity, violence, there is nothing here that has not been featured in a PG-13 movie. There's nudity but not in a sexual context, there's only a little kissing and one somewhat disturbing shot of a dead body. I guess what earns the film its R rating is the theme of suicide and some drug references that parents with teens may be concerned about. I rate this films as iffy for 15 and above.
