• RATED: PG-13 (Eastwood’s drama is awkward yet lovely; language, drinking.)

Police with guns are shown, and one car crashes into another and rams it off the road. Injured animals (with minor wounds) are shown, and death is discussed. Characters use some curse words. A teen tries to drink tequila, and an adult character is seen drinking/drunk. There’s dialogue about selling or abusing “pills, dope, and booze.” The movie is awkward in spots but also a lovely, relaxed drama starring a cinema icon. (Also on HBO Max)

NEWS OF THE WEIRD

By Chuck Sheppard

Bright Idea: Two Polish companies are joining forces to make construction workers’ lives more pleasant, Reuters reported on Aug. 23. Budimex and Lotos have created a floral-scented asphalt with a mixture of natural and synthetic oils that neutralize the typical smell of asphalt. “At times one could smell the scent of flowers, which made working more pleasant,” said Slawomir Szpak, a foreman for Budimex. The company is planning to introduce the new compound on a wider scale.
