QUICK TAKE:
Action/Adventure: A rebellious 15-year-old princess learns she has superhero type powers and is invited to join a secret society of other second-born royals tasked with protecting monarchies around the world.
PLOT:

Sam (PEYTON ELIZABETH LEE) is the 15-year-old princess of Europe's smallest country, Illyria. Raised by her mother, Queen Catherine (ELODIE YUNG), since she was five when a plane crash killed her father, the king, and uncle, Sam has grown up to be a rebel. That's especially true now that her older sister, Eleanor (ASHLEY LIAO), is about to turn eighteen and become the new queen. After another round of misbehaving, Sam learns from her mom that she's going to be sent to summer school and thus won't be able to continue making music with her best friend, Mike (NOAH LOMAX), whose dad is the royal gardener.

Upset about that, Sam initially wants nothing to do with her small group of classmates. They include Princess January (ISABELLA BLAKE THOMAS) who's there for extra credit; Princess Roxana (OLIVIA DEEBLE), who only cares about her large social media following; Prince Tuma (NILES FITCH) who accidentally burned down a chemistry lab with his friends; and the wallflower Prince Matteo (FALY RAKOTOHAVANA) whose parents think might benefit from finally interacting with other students.

Their teacher is James Morrow (SKYLAR ASTIN) who shocks all of them with news that due to the supernatural powers they're only now starting to recognize they're eligible to join the "Secret Society of Second-Born Royals." It's an organization tasked with defending the various monarchies and related royals around the world from the likes of Inmate 34 (GREG BRYK), a dangerous telepath who's been locked away for a decade. They also learn -- and Sam is shocked by -- that Queen Catherine is the leader of the secret society, and that like this younger generation, she too is a second-born royal who possesses super abilities.

As the students begin their training to see which of them will be allowed to join the society, little do anything of them know that Inmate 34 has escaped and is planning to get revenge on the various royals who will be gathering for Princess Eleanor's upcoming coronation.

WILL KIDS WANT TO SEE IT?
As it involves teen superheroes and royalty, those interested in either or both elements might be intrigued by the offering.
WHY THE MPAA RATED IT: Not Rated
Not Rated but the equivalent of a PG rating due to action-based violence.

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.
