QUICK TAKE:
Drama: The much-needed vacation of a famous singer and her boyfriend is interrupted when her old manager/boyfriend and his alluring daughter unexpectedly join them.
PLOT:
Marianne Lane (TILDA SWINTON) is a famous singer on vacation with her filmmaker boyfriend Paul De Smedt (MATTHIAS SCHOENAERTS) on the island of Pantelleria. Due to recent surgery on her vocal chords, she isn't supposed to speak, but that's fine by the two who simply want some rest & relaxation. That's interrupted, however, when her former manager and boyfriend, Harry Hawkes (RALPH FIENNES), arrives with his sultry daughter, Penelope (DAKOTA JOHNSON), and end up staying at the same remote villa with them, later and briefly joined by some of Harry's friends, Mireille (AURORE CLEMENT) and the much younger Sylvie (LILY McMENAMY).

Despite the romantic past between Marianne and Harry, Paul is okay with the visit as, after all, it was Harry who fixed up Paul with her after their split. Even so, Penelope -- who's apparently only just met her dad in the past year or so -- seems to have a distaste for Marianne, but an obvious interest in Paul. At the same time, Harry is obviously interested in his old flame while also possibly having an inappropriate relationship with his alluring daughter who's reportedly 22-years-old. As the days pass by, the attractions of others prove too enticing for some to pass up, leading to things none of them could see coming.

WILL KIDS WANT TO SEE IT?
Older teens might, but that's probably it among kids.
WHY THE MPAA RATED IT: R
For graphic nudity, some strong sexual content, language and brief drug use.

I have subscribed to ScreenIt for more than a decade. I check in every week to take advantage of their amazing services. Not only does their site provide a glimpse of exactly what content a movie offers, I've found the “Our Take” reviews and ratings for each movie to be right on the money every single time. I've referred dozens of friends to this service because my #1 resource for deciding whether or not to show a movie to my kids, or to see one myself, is ScreenIt.com!

I signed up to get Screen It weekly reviews a long time ago, when my kids were young and I wanted to know more about movies before we went to a theater or rented. Now one child is in law school, other in undergraduate, and I still read the weekly Screen Its! It helps me know what my husband and I want to see or rent, and what to have waiting at home that we all will enjoy when my "kids" come home. I depend on Screen It reviews. They usually just present the facts and let me decide if the movie is appropriate or of interest for my family and me. Thank you for providing that service, Screen It!

I have 4 children who are now in college. I signed up for Screen It when my children were pre-teenagers. Often my children would ask to see a movie with a friend and I wished I could preview the movie prior to giving permission. A friend told me about ScreenIt.com and I found it to be the next best thing to previewing a movie. The amount of violence, sexual content, or language were always concerns for me and my husband as we raised innocent kids with morals. We constantly fought the peer pressure our kids received to see films that in our opinion were questionable. With the evidence we received at Screen It, our kids couldn't even fight us when we felt a film may have been inappropriate for them to watch. Thank you, Screen It. Continue to make this helpful service available to everyone, but especially the young parents.

Screenit.com is an amazing resource for parents, educators, church groups or anyone who wants to make an informed decision whether a movie is suitable for their viewing. The reviews and content descriptions are so detailed I am mystified how the reviewers can put them together.

I love screen It! I don't know what I would do without it. It is well worth the membership. Before we take our son to the movies we check it out on screen it first. Thank you SO much for making it. Keep up the good work & keep 'em coming!!!
