Common Sense Note

Parents need to know that Tut is partially rooted in fact but, as in many bio-driven dramas, takes some liberties with historical accuracy. Battles tend toward the epic and bloody, with characters wielding a variety of weapons -- from swords and spears to bows and arrows -- and some downright gruesome visuals, including a graphic impalement. You'll also see simulated sex that doesn't technically show sensitive parts (other than the tops of buttocks or the curves of breasts) but leaves very little to the imagination. Characters drink socially.

Sexual Content

Simulated sex with partial nudity (bare backs, tops of buttocks, sides of breasts) and explicit thrusting. Incest is implied in Tut's marriage to his half-sister; rape is mentioned.


Extended battle scenes show stabbing, gouging, severed limbs, and spurting blood. Characters use a variety of weapons, from spears and swords to bows and arrows.


Not applicable

Social Behavior

Betrayal and political treachery are major themes, but so are duty, honor, and ambition. Thanks to history, the king's fate is inevitable.


Not applicable

Drugs / Tobacco / Alcohol

Social drinking; some drunkenness.
