My rating: 9
Plot: When Nicholas Nickleby's father dies Nicholas is sent to work at boys boarding school. While there Nicholas witnesses the extremely cruel way the school master treats the young boys.
He rescues the crippled boy, Smike , and they runaway to join a traveling play group.
Objectionable content: People are abused, especially Smike. In one scene a man hangs himself, but you only see him from the knees down. Kisses are exchanged between a couple. Some period naked statues and drawings are shown. A man tries to seduce a girl and he insists that she wants to 'make love' to him, but she refuses to accept his advances.
Would I recommend this movie? Yes, but to teens and adults for the thematic plot.
