A SIMPLE FAVOUR is a US mystery thriller in which a woman seeks to uncover the truth about her friend's disappearance.

Language

Strong language includes uses of 'f**k' and 'motherf**ker', alongside milder terms like 'ass', 'asshole', 'dick', 'shit', 'crap', and a reported use of 'dyke'.

Sex

There are strong sex references to threesomes, sex toys, and an incestuous relationship. There are a number of scenes in which characters have sex, but this is depicted without strong visual detail.

Drugs

Moments of drug misuse include one scene in which woman injects heroin and another in which a group of friends smoke marijuana from bongs. There are also a number of verbal drug references, primarily to heroin addiction, but also some comic references to 'weed' and crystal meth.

Violence

Scenes of violence include a drowning, a gunshot to a man's shoulder, and a woman being hit by a car. There is also a scene of implied domestic violence, in which a teenage girl hears the sounds of her father beating her sister.

Other issues include the gruesome sight of a decomposing corpse, female nudity in paintings and sketches, and occasional scenes of threat.
