Common Sense Note

Parents need to know that this compelling interpretation of Shakespeare's classic tragedy, set in modern times, is filled with scheming, betrayal, violence, and intrigue. Like most Shakespearean tragedies, this tale ends with more than a few deaths and little to leave viewers upbeat. On the positive side, it's thoughtfully done and could whet teens' appetite for more of the Bard.

Sexual Content

A few bawdy discussions, though the Shakespearean phrasing makes them unlikely to be offensive. Indeed, the words will probably go over the heads of most young viewers.


Some intense arguments, and several scenes feature fights involving daggers, swords, or handguns. Several characters die.


No words that will be considered risque to 21st century viewers.

Social Behavior

Evil deeds do not go unrewarded in this classic Shakespearean tragedy where almost everyone dies in the end. Unfortunately, some innocents also die as collateral damage, as a terrible crime sweeps up everyone in its path.


Not applicable

Drugs / Tobacco / Alcohol

Some social drinking.
