Parents should know that this is a very sad movie with themes that may be disturbing to some audience members. Characters use brief strong language.

Families who see this movie should talk about some of their own stories about losing people who were dear to them. Do you agree with what Grant did?

Families who appreciate this movie will also appreciate I Never Sang for My Father and Iris. And they should see the other fine films of Oscar-winners Julie Christie and Olympia Dukakis, including Darling, Doctor Zhivago, and Moonstruck.
