Still shot from the movie: All the King’s Men.

Get Our Full Review


A remake of a 1949 movie, All the King's Men stars Sean Penn as Willie Stark, a depression era politician whose campaign ambitions turn into a personal quest for power. A violent shooting makes it an unlikely pick for kids. It's also too long and too confusing -- likely because we can't understand half of what Sean Penn is saying in his Louisiana accent.

Here is additional information on sex, violence and profanity in All the King’s Men...

Government and big business corruption is at the heart of this film’s political intrigue. Unfortunately no one seems to be immune from its effect. Intimidation, bribery and backroom bartering are all used to push through programs. As a result of the fraud, two men commit suicide (one is depicted with a blood-splattered wall and blanket) and two men are killed in a close range shooting with excessive amounts of blood shown. There is discussion of a married man’s numerous liaisons with other women. Cigarettes and alcohol are used throughout the film along with moderate profanities and a racial slur.

Charles Foster Kane is a media mogul who marries well and runs for governor only to discover the dichotomy between pride and ethics in the classic film Citizen Kane. The manipulation of state politics shakes a young man’s belief in democracy when he comes face to face with corruption in Mr. Smith Goes to Washington.
