PIN CUSHION is a drama in which a single mother and her teenage daughter move to a new town where their relationship becomes strained.

Sex

The film contains several strong sex references (for example, a teenage girl is asked by another teenage girl "Have you sucked cock?" and "Have you been fingered?").

There are also a couple of masturbation scenes; however, there is no strong detail.

Language

There are several uses of strong language ('f**k'), as well as some milder bad language (for example, 'bitch', 'dickhead', 'slag', 'God').

In one scene, a character hangs themselves. The film also contains a scene in which a man describes the suicide of another man.

There is also a party scene in which teenagers consume alcohol and play a game in which a teenage girl removes several items of clothing. Images of the naked girl are subsequently circulated via mobile phone; however, there is no strong nudity detail.

The film also includes scenes in which a woman is bullied and taunted about her physical deformity.

There is also a scene of implied self-harm.

There are brief scenes in which a teenage girl ignites an aerosol can, and in one scene it is used to burn another teenage girl who is subsequently seen with burn scars on her body.
