Imitable Behaviour

Thomas Turgoose as Shaun holding a clenched fist towards camera, This Is England 2006

Age rating decisions will take into account any detailed portrayal of criminal and violent techniques, and any glamorisation of easily accessible weapons, such as knives. Works portraying anti-social behaviour (for example, bullying) uncritically are likely to receive a more restrictive age rating. Works which, taken as a whole, actively promote illegal behaviour will be cut or rejected. Portrayals of potentially dangerous behaviour (especially relating to hanging, suicide and self-harm) which children and young people are likely to copy, will be cut if a more restrictive age rating is not appropriate.
