Saving Grace -- High-spirited British romp in which an older woman (Brenda Blethyn) left destitute after her husband's death tries to earn money by using her gardening savvy to grow a bumper crop of marijuana with the help of her pothead gardener (Craig Gerguson). As directed by Nigel Cole, the character-driven, sprightly paced film rolls out the laughs, but the moral implications of resorting to illegal acts to solve life's troubles is problematic. Drug theme with intermittent drug use, implied off-screen suicide, an extramarital affair and unwed pregnancy, brief frontal nudity, recurring rough language and some profanity. The U.S. Catholic Conference classification is (A-IV) -- adults, with reservations. (R) -- restricted. 2000 (Fine Line)
These movies have been evaluated for artistic merit and moral suitability by the media reviewing division of Catholic News Service. The reviews include the CNS rating, the Motion Picture Association of America rating, and a brief synopsis of the movie.
The classifications are as follows:
A-I -- general patronage;
A-II -- adults and adolescents;
A-III -- adults;
L -- limited adult audience, films whose problematic content many adults would find troubling. L replaces the previous classification, A-IV.
O -- morally offensive.
Note: Some movies previously were designated A-IV. Older films with this classification should be regarded as classified L.
