When her alcoholic misdemeanours land her in court on a drunk-driving charge, Gwen Cummings (Sandra Bullock) is sentenced to 28 days in rehab. Arriving at the clinic, Gwen at first resists the discipline and emotional honesty required by her treatment, but she soon forms bonds with the other inmates and builds up the courage to tackle her problem. Also starring Steve Buscemi, Viggo Mortensen and Elizabeth Perkins.

Critics Consensus: Even though 28 Days is tackling a difficult subject, it comes off light and superficial, and maybe even a little preachy.

What Parents Need to Know

Parents need to know that this isn't the typical sweet Sandra Bullock film. Sandra's character Gwen is an alcoholic undergoing rehab. The film includes themes of addiction, suicide, loss, self-hatred and infidelity. Gwen's behavior is reprehensible before she commits herself to getting better. The most upsetting is the suicide death of a main character that Gwen could have helped prevent. Two rehab residents are seen (briefly) in the midst of sexual encounters, but there is no nudity.
