Common Sense Media reviews Invictus for kids and families.
A powerful and unforgettably lyrical film about love, loss and redemption. It tells the story of Jakob Beer, a man whose life is transformed by his childhood experiences during WWII. Through his writing, and then through the discovery of true love, Jakob is ultimately freed from the legacy of his past. The film is based on the beloved and best-selling novel by Canadian poet Anne Michaels.
