Steph:  Hey, did Derek tell you anything about that movie the Kingdom of Heaven?.

Kyle:  No, he didn’t. Is that the movie about The Crusades?

Steph:  Yeah. It is. He was really excited about it, um, when I talked to him.

Kyle:  Yeah. I keep meaning to read something about it to see if I wanna see it. But I think Orlando Bloom’s in that movie isn’t he?

Steph:  He is. And Liam Neeson too. Do you like him?

Kyle:  I do. But I can’t really picture him.

Steph:  You totally pic, you’d know who he was if you saw him kinda thing, you know what I mean?

Kyle:  Ok. So Derek liked the movie?

Steph:  Oh yeah, he loved it. And ya know, it’s really just action-packed. And it’s about an historical moment where there’s a lot of religious turmoil.

Kyle:  Ah, so another big epic adventure for the summer.

Steph:  Yeah. I guess so.

Kyle:  Great. I’ll talk to Derek about it.

Steph:  Ok.

Discussion

This movie is historically based. That means that, although the characters may not be real, some of the stuff happening in the movie really did happen.
Movies that are historically based can be entertaining and educational. Often, you can learn about some political or social event that happened.
I would like to see this movie because it is about the Dark Ages in Europe. That would be really interesting to see on the big screen.
