The Parents Guide items below may give away important plot points.

Violence & Gore

  • Several lower ranking conspirators are hanged by piano wire, their lifeless bodies are visible while one man watches in fear, awaiting for himself to be executed in the same manner. We see his noose put around his neck, then he is executed.
  • Men are seen being hung by piano wire (can be upsetting)

Frightening & Intense Scenes

  • A couple startling gunshots and explosions. Most notably the explosion in the Hitler Assassination attempt- while you do see it coming, it still startles you because you think it's going to start later. The entire scene is intense because of what could happen to the conspirators if they fail. You also see a man who has had his hand amputated do a salute to Hitler and you see the nub.
  • The executions/suicides at the end are intense and emotional.
