SEBASTIANE is a British film, in Latin with English subtitles, about a Christian Roman soldier who is exiled to a remote island.

Sex

There is a prolonged sex scene, which includes sight of an erect penis. There is also a scene showing a pagan ritual dance, in which men wearing giant fake phalluses appear to ejaculate white fluid over a male dancer's face and body.

There are some scenes of strong violence, including a man being crucified, after which arrows are shot into his body. There are also scenes showing flogging and torture. In one scene, a guard threatens to rape a man, although nothing actually happens.

There is infrequent use of strong language ('f**k' and 'motherf**ker'), as well as milder bad language. There is also frequent male nudity, in both sexual and non sexual contexts, as well as moderate sex references.
