Since the beliefs that parents want to instill in their children can vary greatly, we ask that, instead of adding your personal opinions about what is right or wrong in a film, you use this feature to help parents make informed viewing decisions by describing the facts of relevant scenes in the title for each one of the different categories: Sex and Nudity, Violence and Gore, Profanity, Alcohol/Drugs/Smoking, and Frightening/Intense Scenes.

There are two scenes where men are flogged, but only reaction-shots are shown. There is the suggestion of the blood incurred by the flogging as shown from the front of the victim and a later scene in which the wounds on one man's back are shown.

There are three deaths -- one by falling from a height, one from an accidental fall, and also a hanging (but only the victim's feet are shown on that).

The only "intense" scenes are the floggings and they don't last very long.
