DON JON is a drama about a man whose obsession with pornography affects his relationships. It is rated 18 for strong sex and sex references.

There is occasional sight of the pornography that is used by the main character. This includes nudity and sight of performers engaged in various sexual acts, albeit without the most explicit detail. We also see the main character masturbating whilst viewing pornography, also without strong detail. There are a number of strong and detailed verbal sex references.

The film also contains some strong language ('f**k') and one use of very strong language ('c**t'). There is also some sight of joint smoking.

No-one younger than 18 may see an 18 rated film in the cinema. No-one younger than 18 may rent or buy an 18 rated video or DVD.
