What Parents Need to Know
Parents need to know that this is a lavish and gripping movie, beautifully filmed, that commands your attention despite a length of nearly four hours, and a complex lead character. Although tame by modern standards, the battle scenes are still powerful, and could frighten some kids. Because of its complexity and length, this isn't a movie for young children. Mature teens will appreciate this gorgeous production.
- Families can talk about and research together the historical basis for the movie.
