JUBILEE is Derek Jarman's dystopian punk drama, originally released in 1978.
Over twenty uses of strong language ('f**k'), some of which are aggressive and some of which are used in sexual context. There is also moderate and mild bad language.
There is a strong sex scene in which a man thrusts exaggeratedly into a woman, as two other women look on. The scene contains breast nudity and fleeting full frontal nudity, as a woman passes in front of the camera. In a further sex scene there is also a brief glimpse between a woman's legs.
Several scenes of violence, including a man being suffocated with a plastic sheet, and a policeman being knifed and castrated, with sight of his guts briefly falling from his stomach. The violence is presented in an unrealistic fashion.
The film also contains a scene in which a woman carves the word 'love' into another woman's back, using a knife.
