Common Sense Note
Parents need to know that this film is focused on a clash of civilizations, European and Native Indian, beginning in 1607. Depicted largely in metaphorical imagery of woods, fields, rivers, and the settlement called Jamestown, the movie shows the difficulty of intercultural communication. It includes battle scenes (with guns, spears, tomahawks, explosions, and bloody bodies), as well as long, lyrical (non-narrative) passages that might be uninteresting for some younger viewers.
Kissing and nuzzling in primitive setting; declarations of love.
Battle scenes include explosions, spearings, shootings, and beatings.
Old world and New World encounters are the subject of this movie. European settlers corrupt the land and abuse the Native peoples already residing in the "New World."
Drugs / Tobacco /
Some smoking and drinking by the Europeans; Native rituals involve hallucinatory images.
