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.


It´s a new Russian film about the war

What I don´t know is the function of "about the war"

Thanks

Good afternoon.

(1) To the best of my knowledge, you are 100% correct.

(2) I think that most books would classify "about the war"

as a prepositional phrase that modifies (belongs to) the word

"film."

(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!
