QUICK TAKE:
Dramatic Thriller: A young couple must contend with unexpected developments when they inherit a large house owned by the woman's boss.
PLOT:

Four months after her husband, Adam Ketner (JESSIE T. USHER), stopped a gunman at the diner where she worked, Katie Franklin (CAMILA MENDES) now has a job -- placed by home care agency boss George Calvern (MICHAEL P. NORTHEY) -- working as the daytime caretaker for 88-year-old Leonard Wellesley (ELLIOTT GOULD) who lives alone in a big house in Chicago. He's quite fond of Katie -- in a grandfatherly way -- and offers to help them out financially, what with them deep in debt due to Adam's student loans. She declines the offer, but does manage to get Adam a job working at the house as the groundskeeper.

The house has also caught the eye of Mickey Hayden (CAM GIGANDET) who says he has a real estate client who'd like to buy the place, but Katie informs him it's not for sale. But when Leonard ends up dead, not only does Mickey show up again, but so does Det. Chesler (SASHA ALEXANDER) who becomes increasingly suspicious of the young couple, especially after lawyer Julia Byron Kim (JAMIE CHUNG) shows up out of the blue informing them that Leonard left everything to Katie.

With that, the discovery of nearly $100,000 in cash and more, Adam thinks they're now on easy street, all while Katie feels uneasy about their windfall, particularly as odd and troubling things continue to arise.

WILL KIDS WANT TO SEE IT?
Unless they're fans of someone in the cast or old-school domestic thrillers, it doesn't seem that likely.
WHY THE MPAA RATED IT: Not Rated
While not rated by the MPAA, the film is the equivalent of a PG-13 due to the violence and some suggestive content.

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.
