What Parents Need to Know

logo for common sense media

Parents need to know that this epic historical film traces the tumultuous events of the Russian Revolution through the eyes of a noble doctor and poet. Dr. Zhivago's ideals, and his very-personal poetry, have made him a marked man in the socialist state, and he and his family are forced to make some very difficult choices to survive in the new regime. He also must choose between his wife and mistress, though ultimately the decision is forced upon him by the tragic circumstances of the period. There are several significant battle scenes, but little explicit violence. And while Zhivago's long-running affair is a key part of the story, there is no onscreen sex. Expect a good amount of smoking and drinking, especially vodka.
