BORN TO BE BLUE is a US biographical drama about the jazz musician Chet Baker.

Drugs

There are scenes of drug misuse, including sight of a woman injecting of heroin into a man's arm. The film features a character with a drug addiction, so there are further images and verbal references to drug misuse.

Sex

There is brief sight of a man's head between a woman's raised legs, followed by the man thrusting into the woman. There is no strong detail of nudity.

Violence

A man is beaten up by some drug dealers, with close-up detail of blood spurts and injury.

Language

There is frequent use of strong language ('f**k', 'motherf**ker'), as well as use of mild bad language (eg 'shit', 'bastard', 'crap').
