Why is A Man For All Seasons rated G? A Man For All Seasons is rated G by the MPAA

This Academy Award winning film (with six Oscars including Best Picture for 1966) convincingly reconstructs this turbulent time in English and Christian history. Although it contains only a few profanities and some implied violence, young children may object to the dialogue heavy script. Those with longer attention spans will be amply rewarded by what the story offers. Sir Thomas More is not an action figure, like those who frequently flash across the silver screen, but his courageous fortitude makes him a powerful hero nonetheless. A cinematic portrait of integrity, A Man for All Seasons proves there are some qualities that should never fall out of fashion.
