Johnny you've done it again.

great movie. A minor trippy drug scene where a tongue is writhing out a mouth like a snake and a brief sexual encounter seen through a telescope are the only kid unfriendly scenes along with some minor violence. The drinking, political unrest and language were in line with the location and the era. Great acting by Depp and support. Although not a historically correct drama, my 12 year old enjoyed the film and gained a minor understanding of the context surrounding the era, events and man. Oh and you should not pay attention to a review from people who have not actualy watch the movie....ignorance breeds ignorance.
