It is beautiful to look at. Director Terrence Malick knows how to create images of stunning beauty and power. Those images are especially compelling in this story of Captain John Smith and the because they show us what it was like to come

Parents should know that the movie includes some violence and sad deaths. There is some romantic snuggling between an adult man and a young girl.

Families who enjoy this movie will also enjoy Last of the Mohicans.
