As the world watches on, a desperate couple (Armie Hammer, Call Me By Your Name and Nazanin Boniadi, "Homeland") is forced to make unthinkable sacrifices to protect their newborn child. Critics are hailing this film is "intense, hair-raising, and deeply humane… a suspenseful achievement" (New York Observer).

What Parents Need to Know
Parents need to know that Hotel Mumbai is a thriller based on a real-life terrorist attack on India's Taj Mahal Palace Hotel in 2008. Violence is brutal, graphic, and horrifying: There's constant shooting and killing, blood and gore, dead bodies, screams of pain, and grenades and explosions. Language includes several uses of "f--k," "s--t," "a--hole," and more. Sex isn't really an issue, but a married couple kisses, and there's some sex-related dialogue in a couple of scenes. A bit of drinking is shown, both socially in a restaurant and to pass the time while hiding (it's mostly expensive bottles of liquor). While the film can be gripping, it's also overlong and has an uneasy feel, since it mixes "popcorn thriller" elements with a real-life atrocity. Dev Patel and Armie Hammer co-star.
