WELCOME TO MARWEN is a drama in which an artist creates a miniature world to aid his recovery following a brutal attack.

Violence

Moderate violence largely involves animated doll figures within a fantasy version of World War II, including shoot outs and stabbings. In one scene male 'Nazi' dolls threaten a female doll and pull off her top. The strongest moment features a real man being beaten by a group of men in a homophobic attack.

Injury detail

There is occasional sight of blood and injury, chiefly during fighting between animated doll figures within a fantasy version of World War II. However, there is also sight of blood on a real man's face after a homophobic attack and sight of blood when a character imagines another person being shot.

Sex

Moderate sex references include sketches of topless woman and a scene in which a man watches what is implied to be an 'adult' film, although no strong detail is shown.

Drugs

There are references to addiction to, and misuse of, prescription drugs.

Discrimination

Some unsympathetic characters are racist and homophobic and one wears a swastika tattoo. There is use of discriminatory language, including 'queer'.

There are some intense scenes in which a man experiences anxiety attacks as a result of PTSD. There are also some undetailed references to suicide. The film includes some mild bad language (including 'dick', 'shit', 'bastard' and 'crap') and an unfinished use of 'motherf...' in a song lyric.
