Horrible Histories: The Movie - Rotten Romans

PG cinema age rating  

Atti has never been the tough type of Roman soldier, instead using his cleverness to get out of hard work. When he is sent to England as punishment for his scheming ways, he meets a brave Celt called Orla. As their friendship grows, Atti is faced with a tough decision when they come against each other on the battlefield… Emilia Jones, Sebastian Croft, Nick Frost, and Kim Cattrall star in this family comedy, inspired by the award-winning Horrible Histories book series.

Full film details

Teenage Roman solider Atti (Sebastian Croft) is small, weak, and brainy – everything that a warrior is not. Instead, he pulls off clever tricks to get himself out of difficult and testing situations. However, when one of his schemes falls foul of Emperor Nero, he is sent packing to the destitute and rebellious Britain…

Upon his arrival, things go from bad to worse when the young Roman is captured almost immediately by a tough and feisty Celt girl, Orla (Emilia Jones), who is intent on proving herself as a warrior.

On their way back to the Celt camp, Atti and Orla encounter a series of troublesome obstacles, including a particularly bothersome bog, followed by kidnappers from a rival clan. Using his clever Roman know-how, Atti comes to the rescue, impressing Orla with his quick wit and trickery, and the two become friends.

Meanwhile, Nero is plotting to strike Britain and regain the land from the revolting rebels. Atti reluctantly rejoins the Roman army, who are in a bloody battle with the Celts. Atti’s clever brain could win the battle, but it could also spell disaster for his new friend…

Emilia Jones (Brimstone, Locke and Key), Sebastian Croft (Coriolanus, Game of Thrones), Nick Frost (Slaughterhouse Rulez, The World’s End), and Kim Cattrall (Sex and the City, Tell Me a Story), star in this hilarious comedy, perfect for the whole family.
