Beautifully acted film, pro-family themes, definitely for adults

This film has stellar acting performances. Carey Mulligan is incredible. But, as many indie films are, this film is a mature-only film with layered ideas and performances. Ultimately, it is a pro-family-themed film. But it presents that theme through complicated characters. Incredibly good writing.
