Note: The following text may contain spoilers

MARGARET is a US drama set in New York City in which a teenager witnesses a fatal bus crash for which, having distracted the driver at the critical moment, she holds herself partly responsible.

Language

There is infrequent use of very strong language ('c**t').

Sex

A sex scene briefly implies masturbation, cunnilingus, fellatio and intercourse, but the scene is discreetly shot, and there is no strong detail.

Injury detail

The aftermath of an accident shows a blood streaked leg protruding from beneath a vehicle. This is followed by a shot which shows the rest of the victim's body lying several feet away, implying that the leg has been completely severed.

Drugs

A scene shows two characters sharing a joint of marijuana. In another scene, two characters inhale what appear to be poppers.
