Current films are reviewed each week to provide parents a guide to decide what may be appropriate to younger viewers.
CIRQUE DU SOLEIL: WORLDS AWAY
Rating: PG for some dramatic images and mild sensuality
What it's about: A 3-D journey through the spectacular Cirque shows in permanent residence in Las Vegas.
The kid attractor factor: The dazzling performers and shows that kids never see what with them being in Sin City and all.
Good lessons, bad lessons: Master mime or juggling or synchronized swimming and you, too, could be a Cirque star.
Violence: Stylized, nothing worth mentioning.
Language: There's virtually no dialogue, and no profanity.
Sex: The costumes have a hint of sexy about them.
Parents advisory: Leotards and tights aside, this is entertainment clean enough for the whole family OK for all ages, a bit slow for the very young to sit through.
HYDE PARK ON HUDSON
Rating: R for brief sexuality
What it's about: President Franklin Roosevelt entertains the king and queen of England at his mother's estate while carrying on an affair with a distant cousin.
The kid attractor factor: "King's Speech"-era history, played for laughs.
Good lessons, bad lessons: Great figures of history have their unseemly human side.
Language: Reasonably clean, considering.
Sex: Glimpsed nudity, implied intimacy.
Drugs: Alcohol and cigarettes are consumed in copious quantities.
Parents advisory: A history lesson that teens will get more out of than younger children, suitable for ages 13 and older.
