When Audrey Burke (Halle Berry) losses her husband (David Duchovny) during a random act of violence, she tries to hang onto his memory by befriending his childhood chum Jerry (Benicio Del Toro).

Here is additional information on sex, violence and profanity in Things We Lost in the Fire...

This movie (rated R in the United States) features explicit drug use, but also includes the graphic and dire consequences of such abuse along with a positive conclusion. Scenes show other secondary people using and under the influence of illegal substances. At least fifteen sexual expletives are used, some in a sexual context, as well as other mild and moderate profanities. There are some sexual interactions and dialogue within the context of a loving marriage relationship. A man is seen beating and kicking his wife, and another man is shot to death when he intervenes (some bloody details are seen). A woman grieves over the loss of her husband. One character smokes a cigarette during a stressful situation, while another—who is depicted as addicted to other harmful substances—smokes frequently. People drink socially.
