More stands up for what he believes in, even if it means death. A great role model!

May be a little over the head of younger kids. Great movie for High schoolers.

The story of Thomas More, who stood up to King Henry VIII when the King rejected the Roman Catholic Church to obtain a divorce and remarriage. Legendary incredible performance...if you know what they are talking about. 99% just the script with complicated words. Not intense, but maybe over the heads and boring for younger kids. The message and acting bring out the story for standing up for what is right at all costs (even death). A little violence. The whole story is based around a divorce. Some little language, not much.

Slow-paced, but great dialogue & ensemble

Scofield is subtle, wise and powerful as Thomas More, a man who goes to the very end to (silently) fight what he believes in. This Best Picture winner takes a hard look at morality and staying true to yourself, and features rock solid supporting acting from John Hurt, Leo McKern, and especially Robert Shaw, whose King Henry VIII is a scene-stealing, dynamic bully.

Boring and not worth watching

This movie is really boring and my mom and I both fell asleep while watching it.
