Set in 1250 B.C. during the late Bronze age, "Troy" tells the story of two clashing nations.
Tensions arise when Paris (Orlando Bloom), the Trojan prince, convinces Helen (Diane Kruger), Queen of Sparta, to leave her
husband Menelaus (Brendan Gleeson),
and sail with him back to Troy. After Menelaus finds out that his wife was taken by the Trojans,
he asks his brother Agamemnom (Brian Cox) to help him get her back. Agamemnon sees this as an opportunity for power,
and they set off with 1,000 ships holding 50,000 Greeks to Troy. With the help of Achilles (Brad Pitt),
the Greeks are able to fight the never before defeated Trojans. But they come to a stop by Hector (Eric Bana),
Prince of Troy. The film displays the nations' battles, and the foreshadowing of fate in this
remake by Wolfgang Petersen of Homer's "The Iliad."
This film is rated R for graphic violence and some sexuality/nudity.
