Historical biopic is teen-friendly, but dull

Aside from the multiple uses of the f-word, this movie is fairly clean. However, most audiences (teens and adults) will find this movie extremely boring, due to its cheaply made style and excruciatingly slow pace. Unless you are hugely into politics, skip this one.

This title has:

Too much swearing
