Why so much sex?

Is every film producer now a womanizer? No one desires to see woman tits or sex. Move away from it. We will no longer be watching!

Turn Turns In Compelling History Storytelling

Turn : Washington Spies is a compelling and well written, although slow moving story of the revolution. What's important here is not the pace, but the history that families learn from this contemporary re-telling of the American Revolution and it's told in fine form. The stories are well thought out, but told from an adults perspective of the war which means it's not for the younger set. For the mid-teenage set, but certainly educational
