GRADUATION is a Romanian drama in which a doctor is faced with difficult decisions when his daughter's academic future is jeopardised.

Language

There is infrequent use of very strong language ('c**t'), as well as several repetitions of the term in unsubtitled Romanian. There is also infrequent use of strong language ('f**k', 'motherf**ker') and of milder terms including 'bastard'.

Violence

There are frequent verbal references to sexual assault and attempted rape. The strongest of these occur in a scene in which a teenaged girl attempts to identify her attacker from a line up of suspects at a police station. The suspects each read from a script, featuring verbal threats and very strong language, of the attacker's words during the assault. Other references include the recitation of a statement given to police, describing a sexual assault.

Other issues include mild sex references in a scene in which a couple kiss and embrace on a bed.
