CHOSEN is a war drama about a Hungarian man's attempt to lead a resistance against the Nazi occupation of Hungary.

Violence

There is strong violence, including shootings, a character being strangled to death, and a character being set alight with a flame-thrower. Another character is stabbed to death. Most of the violence takes place in a war context, with some characters sustaining bloody injuries. There is also a scene of sexual violence as a woman is raped by a military officer.

There is infrequent mild bad language, including 'bastard'.

There is a bereavement theme: a man loses his wife to breast cancer as she is refused treatment because she is Jewish.
