GOD'S POCKET is a US drama about a man's struggle to finance the funeral of his stepson and deal with the emotional demands of his wife.

Language

Multiple uses of strong language ('f**k' and 'motherf**ker'), as well as various uses of milder bad language, such as 'shit', 'bitch' and 'assholes'. There are also some uses of 'nigger', but these come from an unpleasant character whose attitude is challenged by others.

Sex

There are a couple of scenes of strong sex, which include thrusting and implied orgasm. In another scene, there is some breast nudity as a young woman lies beside a man, with her arm movements suggesting she is masturbating him. There are some strong verbal sex references, including a man boasting about oral sex.

Violence

In one scene, a man pushes his thumb into another man's eye socket, resulting in blood spurting out around the thumb. There are further blood spurts as a couple of men are shot. There are also a couple of punch ups, and a man is struck over the back of the head with a metal pole.
