Common Sense Note

Parents need to know that this is a well-crafted epic that remains true to the biblical story of Esther. Some characters plot, scheme, kill, and steal, but there's not much sexual content, and the violence is limited to some stabbings (very little blood is shown). Overall the movie is definitely family-friendly -- hence our green "on" rating despite a little bit of iffy material.

Sexual Content

Some kissing and cleavage. One scene with the king's bare chest.

Violence

A man is struck with a stick. Some stabbings, but very little blood is shown.
