SING STREET is an Irish music drama, set in Dublin in the 1980s, in which a fifteen-year-old schoolboy forms a band and dreams of moving to London.
There are two uses of strong language ('f**k'), one spoken and one written. There is also moderate and mild bad language, including uses of 'bastard', 'bitch', 'piss off', 'screwed' and 'shit'.
In one scene, a boy refers to a black boy who is not present as a 'golliwog'. His use of the term, however, is immediately challenged and condemned by another boy
There are infrequent scenes of cannabis joint smoking.
In one scene a woman inserts batteries into a vibrator before closing her bedroom door. Subsequent sexual activity is implied but not seen.
There are several scenes in which teenage schoolboys smoke cigarettes.
Other issues include infrequent mild violence.
