Common Sense Note

Parents need to know that Cymbeline is a modern-day Shakespeare adaptation. Violence is the main issue; there are lots of guns and shootings, plus bloody wounds, a beheading, a character buried alive, dead bodies, beating/fighting, and more. On the sex side of things, there's kissing and sex-related dialogue, and a male character moves his hand under his clothes as if he's preparing to masturbate. Language isn't an issue aside from one use of "hell." This is one of Shakespeare's lesser-known plays, so it probably won't appeal to teens as much as Romeo & Juliet or Hamlet might, but it's worth a look.

Sexual Content

A male character moves his hand under his pants to his crotch (impending masturbation implied). Also kissing, some sex-related dialogue, and a male character naked (nothing sensitive shown).

Violence

Guns and shooting; character is beheaded (blood shown); other dead characters -- and some buried alive; golf club bashing to the head (off screen); cop-shooting; blood spurt sounds; skateboarder smashes into a cop car; character throws another one to the floor.

Language

"Hell."

Social Behavior

Untrustworthiness is a running theme; most of the characters get into trouble by trusting those they shouldn't. But on a certain level, the movie promotes asking questions, rather than blindly accepting the status quo.

Consumerism

Frequent use of iPhones, iPads, and Apple computers.
