Welcome to the Rileys (2010)

From NetFlix: Devastated by their daughter's death eight years ago, Doug (James Gandolfini) and his guilt-ridden wife, Lois (Melissa Leo), lead depressing lives without much meaning. But by forming an unconventional relationship with teen call girl Mallory (Kristen Stewart), the couple begins to rediscover hope. Directed by Jake Scott, this compelling family drama also stars David Jensen, Kathy Lamkin and Lance E. Nichols. 2010 111 minutes

DJE: Fine performances. Convincing. Serious. No wonder it was not a box-office hit, but this film stays with one.
