Tristan & Isolde
Source: Catholic News Service
Occasionally stirring but mostly somber retelling of the classic star-crossed love story set in the 6th century, about an English knight (James Franco) and his Irish lover (Sophia Myles) -- promised in marriage to his liege (Rufus Sewell) -- who must choose between passion and duty with the peace of their warring peoples hanging in the balance. Despite nice photography, attractive leads and the enduring themes of love, loss and honor, director Kevin Reynolds' tale of tragic romance is weighed down by Franco's brooding and humorless performance. Intense battle violence, including severed limbs, a hanging, several sexual situations with suggested nudity, and themes of adultery. The USCCB Office for Film & Broadcasting classification is A-III -- adults. The Motion Picture Association of America rating is PG-13 -- parents strongly cautioned. Some material may be inappropriate for children under 13.
