Note: The following text may contain spoilers

THE PADDY LINCOLN GANG is a drama about an Irish punk-rock band who are on the verge of success, but whose future is threatened by the lead singer's fragile and dangerous mental state.

Language

There are over 100 uses of strong language ('f**k' and 'motherf**ker'), as well as a single use of very strong language ('c**t'), said by one man about another, but not in his presence. More moderate terms include 'dick', 'prick' and 'retard'.

Violence

A sequence of strong bloody violence shows frenzied but undetailed stabs to a torso, two implied throat slittings, and partial sight of a man cutting his own wrist. Aftermath includes sight of blood pooling beside the dead man and images of a victim's bloody slit throat.

Drugs

There are a couple of brief scenes showing men snorting cocaine and white powder being chopped out. Moderate references to 'shooting up', and being 'coked up', feature without accompanying visuals.

Sex

One impressionistic and visually blurred scene appears to show a woman performing oral sex on a man, but without strong detail. There are also strong references to semen stains, and to a man masturbating whilst being penetrated with a dildo.

The film also contains buttock nudity and moderate threat.
