Rated R · 99 min. · 2010

Drama
Susan Sarandon, Pierce Brosnan, and Carey Mulligan explore the actorly mechanics of grief, but Mulligan is the only one worth paying attention to. The mourning parents (Sarandon, Brosnan) of a teenager killed in a car crash (Aaron Johnson) are shocked when the late son’s girlfriend (Mulligan) appears on their doorstep to announce that she’s pregnant with his baby. Thrown aside carelessly are a couple of more interesting subplots: the interaction of the younger brother (Johnny Simmons) with a girl in his grief counseling class (Zoë Kravitz); and Sarandon’s needy pumping of the driver who killed her son, a hood played by the dependably menacing Michael Shannon. Writer-director Shana Feste has a way with the players, but her screenplay needs massaging (99 min.).
