MISTER LONELY is a film about two communities - a commune of impersonators living in the Scottish Highlands and a group of nuns in Panama. It was passed '15' for strong language and sex references. At '15', the BBFC's Guidelines allow 'frequent use of strong language (eg 'fuck')'. MISTER LONELY contains around 20 uses of the word and is therefore containable at '15'. MISTER LONELY also contains infrequent strong sex references, including a sexual use of 'fuck' and implied digital penetration of a woman. These are permissible under the '15' Guidelines which allow 'strong verbal references to sexual behaviour' and the portrayal of sexual behaviour 'without strong detail'.
MISTER LONELY also contains an undetailed suicide by hanging; the implied shooting of infected sheep; nuns falling to earth without parachutes; sight of several corpses; and lesser language and sex references.
MISTER LONELY also contains strobe lighting effects which may be an issue for those with photosensitive epilepsy.
