ANOTHER YEAR is a drama about a middle-aged couple. The film was classified '12A' for infrequent strong language.
The BBFC's Guidelines at '12A'/'12' state that 'The use of strong language (for example, 'fuck') must be infrequent'. There are three uses of strong language in the film, none of which are used in a particularly aggressive or directed manner. Rather, they reflect feelings of intense sadness (such as a character remembering a friend who has passed away) or frustration (such as another character explaining tersely why he was late for his mother's funeral).
ANOTHER YEAR also contains some mild and moderate language, such as 'God', 'arse', 'bloody', 'bugger', 'shit', 'sod', 'piss' and 'bitch', as well as some mild sex references and innuendo. The film also includes some mild drug references in a scene where two older characters recall using pot when they were younger. However, their comments carry no overt glamorisation or endorsement of drug misuse and the film, taken as a whole, does not promote drug misuse. There are also some scenes in which older characters smoke cigarettes, but again there is no glamorisation of the activity.
