GINGER & ROSA is a coming-of-age drama about two young women living in London in the 1960s who become involved in the anti-nuclear movement and the sexual revolution.

Language

There are two uses of strong language ('f**k'), alongside milder terms like 'sluts' and 'bitch'.

Sex

There are verbal references to affairs. At one point a young woman is reading in bed when she hears the faint sounds of a woman sighing and gasping as she has sex in the adjoining room. However, no visual detail of sex is shown.

Suicide

It is implied that a woman has taken an overdose of prescription pills. Although there is sight of bottles scattered on the floor there is no information about what the pills are and the woman survives. Attempted suicide is not glamorised and there is no suggestion this is a reasonable solution to problems.

Two older teenage girls experiment with smoking cigarettes.
