Note: The following text may contain spoilers

REQUIEM FOR A DREAM is a US drama about four people whose dreams are jeopardised by their addictions.

Drugs

There are frequent scenes of drug misuse, including cannabis, cocaine, heroin and 'weight loss' pills. In one scene a man is seen inserting a needle into a badly infected wound in his arm. The work does not condone or promote drugs misuse.

Sex

Scenes of sex include male thrusting during intercourse, implied fellatio and breast nudity. In one sequence two women are penetrated by a dildo while a crowd of men watch, although the scene does not show strong detail.

Scenes of strong violence include a shooting and a sequence in which a fork is stabbed into a man's hand. In other scenes a woman receives ECT treatment, causing her body to convulse, and a man receives an operation to his arm with some accompanying bloody detail.

There is occasional use of strong language ('f**k', 'motherf**ker').
