A powerful drama about finding hope in the most unusual of places. Once a happily married and loving couple, Doug and Lois Riley (Gandolfini and Leo) have grown apart since losing their teenage daughter eight years prior. Leaving his agoraphobic wife behind to go on a business trip to New Orleans, Doug meets a 16-year-old runaway (Stewart) and the two form a platonic, familial bond. For Lois and Doug, what initially appears to be the final straw that will derail their relationship, turns out to be the inspiration they need to renew their marriage.

Critics Consensus: Despite earnest performances, Welcome to the Rileys cannot escape its belabored over-sentimentality and sluggish delivery.

Common Sense Says
A couple finds a way out of mourning in wrenching drama.

What Parents Need to Know

Parents need to know that this indie drama stars Twilight's Kristen Stewart as a teenage stripper -- not exactly an ideal role model for her younger fans. Just as well, then, that not too many of them are likely to be drawn to this mature, often wrenching story about how a couple copes after the death of their daughter. Their marriage is in disarray, their hearts broken; at times, it’s very difficult to watch. Expect plenty of swearing (including "f--k," "s--t," and more) and some graphic discussions about sex, as well as a few scenes that include smoking, drinking, and drug use (some by a teen).
