Drama: A mother reluctantly agrees yet again to try to help her thirty-something daughter kick her heroin addiction.

Molly (MILA KUNIS) is a 31-year-old drug addict who's spent the past decade claiming to want to go clean only to relapse. She's once again arrived on the doorstep of her mom, Deb (GLENN CLOSE), and new stepdad, Chris (STEPHEN ROOT), but Deb wants no part of helping her, having gone down that road to disappointment too many times.

But with Molly in bad shape and not leaving the yard, and with her wanting to see her two kids that she has with her ex-husband, Sean (JOSHUA LEONARD), Deb relents and takes her daughter to a rehab facility where she can only stay for a few days. But the doctor there informs her of a new drug that could finally help her kick the habit, but she needs to be clean for a week to take it.

Accordingly, Deb reluctantly agrees to allow Molly to stay with her for several days, constantly worried that she's going to relapse and thus ruin what might be her last chance. As they try to make that work, past wounds resurface, including about Deb abandoning her first husband, Dale (SAM HENNINGS), and Molly when she was a teenager.

Probably only if they're fans of someone in the cast.
For drug content, language throughout and brief sexuality.

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!!!
