Common Sense Note

Parents need to know that this engrossing, fact-based drama -- which is rated R primarily for a few scenes of strong language (including one "f"-word-filled outburst) -- has inspiring and empowering messages about triumphing over your fears. An indie about a king who stutters might not seem like typical adolescent fare, but don't judge a movie by the brief synopsis: Teens will enjoy it as much as the grown-ups will if they give it a chance. In addition to the swearing, there's some social drinking, but that all fades in comparison to the movie's surprisingly moving themes of hope and perseverance. Note: An edited version of the movie that removes/lessens some of the strongest language has been rated PG-13 and released separately.

Sexual Content

A king abdicates from the throne because of his involvement with a divorcee. There are references to her "talents" behind closed doors.


A character struggles with his temper, which is fueled by frustration.


Strong language includes "bastard," "bloody," "tits," "damn," "ass," "hell," and "bugger." And in one memorable scene, a man yells out a stream of words like "s--t" and "f--k."

Social Behavior

The film has a stirring message: Our biggest limitations are the voices in our head that remind us of all of our imperfections and failures. But they're only voices, and our will is stronger than our fears. The film has some classist overtones, but they're placed within historical context.


Not applicable

Drugs / Tobacco / Alcohol

Some social drinking (sherry, whisky, wine).
