When a successful New York ad executive suffers a personal tragedy and retreats from life, his friends devise a drastic plan to reach him before he loses everything. Pushing him to the very edge, they force him to confront the truth in surprising and profoundly human ways. From Oscar-winning director David Frankel, this thought-provoking drama explores how even the deepest tragedy can reveal moments of beauty, and how the constants of love, time and loss interlock in a life fully lived.

Rotten Tomatoes® Score
Critics Consensus: Well-meaning but fundamentally flawed, Collateral Beauty aims for uplift but collapses in unintentional hilarity.

Cast is best part of sentimental drama about grief.
What Parents Need to Know
Parents need to know that Collateral Beauty is an emotional drama about an advertising genius (Will Smith) who's lost the will to work in the three years since his young daughter's death. The movie tackles mature themes related to grief (grieving parents tell stories about their dead children), loss, divorce, work-life balance, and death, so although the content isn't all that edgy, it's likely too heavy for younger viewers. Occasional strong language includes "bulls--t," "s--t," "ass," "bitch," and one "f--king." A man nearly gets in accidents on his bike, and there's some mild flirting, references to adultery, and a few couples who embrace. The movie promotes compassion and empathy, and viewers will get plenty of lessons about the importance of family and how life has three ultimate motivators -- time, love, and death.
