discrimination

There is use of the terms 'negro' and 'coloured', both in a historical context without racist intent, but also by racist characters in a derogatory fashion. Characters express racist views and promote segregation. A man heckles Elvis, calling him a 'fairy' for his hair and use of make-up. Discrimination is not condoned by the work.

drugs

Elvis takes various pills and is injected with different drugs to continue performing, but the detrimental effects these have on his health are foregrounded.

flashing/flicking lights

This work contains flashing images which may affect viewers who are susceptible to photosensitive epilepsy.

injury detail

There is brief archive footage of the assassination of Bobby Kennedy, including sight of blood.

language

There is infrequent strong language ('f**k') and milder terms including 'god', 'bastard', 'whore', 'damn', 'ass', 'bitch', 'asshole', 'sons of bitches', 'shit', 'bullshit', and 'screw'.

sex

There are brief references to a "whore house" and focus on sexualised dancing, including young women becoming excited by Elvis' dancing. There are also brief sequences of implied sex.


There are brief moments of mild violence and threat, and scenes of emotional upset and manipulation.
