QUICK TAKE:
Musical: A look at the life and times of Alexander Hamilton and his contemporaries.
PLOT:

It's 1776 and 19-year-old immigrant Alexander Hamilton (LIN-MANUEL MIRANDA) arrives in New York, with his rhetorical reputation preceding him. He meets other hopeful revolutionaries against the British rule of King George (JONATHAN GROFF) including Aaron Burr (LESLIE ODEOM JR.) with whom he develops a competitive relationship. That's heightened when General George Washington (CHRISTOPHER JACKSON) chooses him as his right-hand man, although Alexander longs for a military regiment of his own. What he does get is a relationship with Eliza Schuyler (PHILLIPA SOO) after her sister, Angelica (RENEE ELISE GOLDSBERRY), introduces them.

After the revolution, Alexander's adversarial relationship with Aaron continues as the new country begins to take shape, with Thomas Jefferson (DAVEED DIGGS) returning from France and becoming Secretary of State, while Alexander has the job of Secretary of the Treasury handed to him by newly-elected President Washington. Even later, and with his son, Philip (SYDNEY JAMES HARCOURT), following in his footsteps, Alexander continues to serve his country all while facing political opponents and personal controversy.

WILL KIDS WANT TO SEE IT?
If they're fans of the Broadway musical (or have heard the buzz about it) they probably will.
WHY THE MPAA RATED IT: PG-13
For language and some suggestive material.

I have subscribed to ScreenIt for more than a decade. I check in every week to take advantage of their amazing services. Not only does their site provide a glimpse of exactly what content a movie offers, I've found the “Our Take” reviews and ratings for each movie to be right on the money every single time. I've referred dozens of friends to this service because my #1 resource for deciding whether or not to show a movie to my kids, or to see one myself, is ScreenIt.com!

I signed up to get Screen It weekly reviews a long time ago, when my kids were young and I wanted to know more about movies before we went to a theater or rented. Now one child is in law school, other in undergraduate, and I still read the weekly Screen Its! It helps me know what my husband and I want to see or rent, and what to have waiting at home that we all will enjoy when my "kids" come home. I depend on Screen It reviews. They usually just present the facts and let me decide if the movie is appropriate or of interest for my family and me. Thank you for providing that service, Screen It!

I have 4 children who are now in college. I signed up for Screen It when my children were pre-teenagers. Often my children would ask to see a movie with a friend and I wished I could preview the movie prior to giving permission. A friend told me about ScreenIt.com and I found it to be the next best thing to previewing a movie. The amount of violence, sexual content, or language were always concerns for me and my husband as we raised innocent kids with morals. We constantly fought the peer pressure our kids received to see films that in our opinion were questionable. With the evidence we received at Screen It, our kids couldn't even fight us when we felt a film may have been inappropriate for them to watch. Thank you, Screen It. Continue to make this helpful service available to everyone, but especially the young parents.

Screenit.com is an amazing resource for parents, educators, church groups or anyone who wants to make an informed decision whether a movie is suitable for their viewing. The reviews and content descriptions are so detailed I am mystified how the reviewers can put them together.

I love screen It! I don't know what I would do without it. It is well worth the membership. Before we take our son to the movies we check it out on screen it first. Thank you SO much for making it. Keep up the good work & keep 'em coming!!!
