A woman (Anne Hathaway) returns home when her brother (Ben Rosenfield) is injured in an accident and ends up in a coma.

Also with Mary Steenburgen and Gideon Glick. Directed by Kate Barker-Froyland. [1:26]

SEX/NUDITY 5 - A man and a woman kiss, he unbuttons her dress and they lie in bed where he kisses her elbow and we hear rhythmic breathing and moaning as he thrusts; they kiss and caress each other while lying in bed after having had sex.

VIOLENCE/GORE 2 - A young man wearing earphones and listening to music steps into a city street and we understand that he is struck by a car when we hear a horn honk loudly (we do not see him being struck).
 A woman punches a wall and yells in anger and frustration (no injuries are shown).
 We see a young man on a ventilator in a hospital bed in many scenes throughout the movie. A woman holds a young man's eyelids open with her fingers (he is in a coma). A young man in a coma opens his eyes then drifts back into the coma; his sister yells and calls for help.
 A woman gets a call from her mother saying that her brother is in the hospital in a coma and that she needs to come home. A woman is startled when a man enters a hospital room where she is with her brother who is in a coma. A woman talks about having fought with her brother and that she had not seen him since then (he is now in a coma). A man admits to being afraid of heights.

CAVEATS

Be aware that while we do our best to avoid spoilers it is impossible to disguise all details and some may reveal crucial plot elements.

We've gone through several editorial changes since we started covering films in 1992 and older reviews are not as complete & accurate as recent ones; we plan to revisit and correct older reviews as resources and time permits.

Our ratings and reviews are based on the theatrically-released versions of films; on video there are often Unrated, Special, Director's Cut or Extended versions, (usually accurately labelled but sometimes mislabeled) released that contain additional content, which we did not review.
