GRAVITY is a science fiction drama about a pair of astronauts on a mission who are left stranded in space after debris from a satellite destroys their shuttle. It is rated 12A for sustained moderate threat, disturbing images and strong language.
There are numerous scenes of threat as the surviving astronauts dodge debris from exploding space vehicles, explosions, bursts of flame and high speed buffeting by and bouncing off various space vehicles and crashing spacecraft. There is also a brief scene of a woman close to drowning. While many of these sequences of threat are sustained, they demonstrate an overwhelmingly positive message about the human will and ability to survive.
Brief but disturbing images of dead bodies in space include a man whose frozen face has a hole in the middle where his nose has broken off.
There is a single use of strong language ('f**k') by one of the astronauts expressing frustration and stress which is not directed at anyone. The film also contains some milder bad language, such as ‘shit’ and 'sonofabitch'.
No-one younger than 12 may see a 12A film in a cinema unless accompanied by an adult. No-one younger than 12 may rent or buy a 12 rated video or DVD.
