Note: The following text may contain spoilers

AMY is a documentary exploring the life and work of singer-songwriter Amy Winehouse.

Language

There is infrequent use of very strong language ('c**t') and occasional use of strong language ('f**k').

Drugs

There are frequent references to the use of various illegal drugs, including marijuana, crack cocaine and heroin, as well as extensive alcohol abuse. The references are occasionally accompanied by sight of drugs, including cocaine being cut and needles lying on a table. However, the work as a whole does not glamorise or condone drug use.

There are occasional moderate sex references, as well as discussion of Winehouse's bulimia and depression. Infrequent references to self harm also occur.

This work contains flashing images which may affect viewers who are susceptible to photosensitive epilepsy.
