Can anybody tell me what the function is for "about the war" in this sentence. I'm thinking may be it's a prepositional object but I'm not sure.
Itīs a new Russian film about the war

as a prepositional phrase that modifies (belongs to) the word
(a) "about" = preposition
(b) "the war" = object of the preposition.
Tom: Do you want to see a new Russian film with me tonight?
Mona: Sure! What's it about?
Tom: It's about the war.
Mona: Oh, I'm sorry. I don't like movies about the war.
Tom: OK. Would you be interested in a film about the Bolshoi Ballet?
Mona: That would be great!
***** Have a nice day!
