Movies have been noted to contribute to peace education. In this article, peace-themed movies praised by the American Political Film Society (PFS; n.d.) have been investigated in terms of age classifications and their justifications as assigned by movie advisory boards in the United Kingdom, Australia, and the United States. The majority of these movies have been deemed suitable only for adults by the American and British boards due to the heavy violence and profanity, with the Australian board also noting adult themes. This limits their potential incorporation within peace education programs targeting youth.
