There is strong language ('motherf**ker', 'f**k') along with milder terms which include 'bitch', 'son of a bitch', 'shit', 'ass', 'arsehole', 'jerk', 'God', 'damn' and 'hell'. There is also use of the middle finger gesture.
A man uses the term 'negro' in a discriminatory way. A woman describes a man who employs her and then sexually harasses her with unwanted advances as a 'dirty old man'; she also experiences casual sexual harassment as male bystanders whistle and comment on her appearance. A man attacks and beats up another on the street, with punches, kicks and repeated blows to him as he lies on the ground; the victim escapes with minor injuries and bruising. Two gangs fight drunkenly in the street, in scenes of mild, undetailed violence. There is a fleeting, undetailed verbal reference to suicide. Characters drink and drive.
