What Parents Need to Know
Parents need to know that this retelling of the Arthur-Guinevere-Lancelot love triangle has action, romance, and scads of bloody battle sequences, death, maiming, and other assorted medieval savagery. Still, its more quantity than "quality" -- expect lots of red swords and red-drenched clothing, but no gory displays of visible entrails, decapitations, or amputation.
- Families can talk about the enduring legend of King Arthur. Was he a historic or mythical figure -- or perhaps a king whose life was embellished for literary purposes? Which version of his story do you like best? The one from books such as The Once and Future King? The movies like this one with flashy stars? The cartoons like The Sword in the Stone? Or even the comedy Monty Python and the Holy Grail?
