THE TRUTH ABOUT EMANUEL is a US drama about a teenage girl who becomes obsessed with a new neighbour who resembles her dead mother.

Language

A single use of strong language ('f**k'), as well as milder bad language, including uses of 'butt' and 'jerk'.

Sex

There are occasional moderate sex references, including a girl referring to a man using a rhythmic motion to 'jerk off'. She also tells a colleague that a store cupboard is not his 'private jerk off closet' and jokingly teases him about using the penis pump that has been delivered at the pharmacy where they work.

There are also some scenes of emotional distress, as a girl and her father discuss the death of her mother during childbirth. A woman also becomes distraught when she is forced to confront the fact that her baby has died.
