THE SON OF JOSEPH is a French drama about a teenager who craves a relationship with his biological father.

Language

Infrequent strong language ('f**k') as well as milder terms including 'shit' and 'bastard'.

Threat

Moderate threat as a man is cuffed to a chair, gagged, and a knife held to his throat. However, he is released without being harmed.

Sex

Moderate sex as a man hides under furniture while a couple have sex above him. A woman's underwear drop to the floor, and moaning is heard, but the couple are otherwise unseen. There is a verbal reference to a man selling his sperm on the internet and saying that his customers include men: "I don't know what they do with it".

A man admits drug use in his youth.
