NOCTURNAL ANIMALS is a drama in which a disillusioned woman escapes into the world of a crime thriller novel written by her former husband.
There are occasional and sometimes prolonged scenes of strong threat, including a sequence in which a group of men force a family off the road, surround their car, and terrorise the mother and daughter with sexual threats.
Infrequent scenes of strong violence include shootings and a man being attacked with a crowbar, with resultant sight of a bloody injury to his face.
There are verbal references to sexual violence, as well as a brief scene in which a man assaults a young woman.
Scenes of strong nudity include footage of women dancing, revealing breast and buttock nudity and sight of pubic hair. The women are also seen posing naked in an art gallery.
There is frequent use of strong language ('f**k').
