DOWN DOG is a drama about a wayward and absent father who is led to believe he's seriously ill and decides to mend his ways and reconnect with his ex-wife and teenage son.
There are over 35 uses of strong language ('f**k'). Milder terms include 'twat', 'prick' and 'whore'.
A strong sex scene shows a man thrusting on top of a woman, his naked buttocks exposed. There are strong and crude sex references throughout, including to oral sex, genitalia and orgasms. There are visuals of various sex toys and a graphic drawing of a huge erect penis.
Scenes of drug use show a teen smoking a joint and a father and son sharing a joint as they 'bond'. However, the father makes it clear this is a 'one-off'.
The film also contains moderate violence, racist language, and drug references.
