Superb movie of More's stand against Henry VIII.

What Parents Need to Know

Parents need to know that this is an outstanding study of a man faced with a harrowingly difficult moral choice. The king wishes to divorce his wife, which at the time was not allowed. A man stands his ground but is executed (not graphic) for his steadfast beliefs. There's some drinking.
