PUSHER is a British thriller about a small-time London drug dealer called Frank who ends up on the run from both the police and his supplier after he is set up.

Language

There is strong language ('f**k') throughout and several uses of very strong language ('c**t').

Drugs

There are a number of scenes in which key characters are shown snorting cocaine, and in one case preparing and injecting heroin. Drugs are shown to be a normal part of life for many of the key characters, as well as the main character's profession.

Violence

A man is tortured by men to whom he owes money. He is beaten up and then taped to a chair, after which a live electrical wire is used on his nipple, leaving a burn injury. Other violent moments include shootings and knife threat.

Sex

A man vigorously thrusting into a woman from behind while he talks on the phone. There are also strong verbal sex references.
