language
There is frequent use of strong language (‘f**k’); very strong language ('c**t') is fleetingly visible in text on a man's t-shirt at a nightclub. Milder terms include ‘dick’, ‘pissed’, ‘tits’ and ‘shit’.
sex
A short scene shows a man masturbating a woman, below frame, in a semi-public setting. Visual and verbal sex references are occasionally crude.
drugs
People are seen inhaling a substance implied to be nitrous oxide from balloons at clubs and parties. A person prepares and smokes a joint.
sexual violence and sexual threat
Short scenes of sexual violence show a teenage boy thrusting on top of a teenage girl as she grimaces in discomfort. Subsequent scenes show the girl trying to rationalise the sexual violence to herself and her friends as consensual sex, though she is clearly distressed by these events. Hosts at a nightclub event bring drunk men on stage, strip them and encourage women in the audience to fellate them to see which of them gets ‘hard’ first; the visual detail is discreet, however. The film deals with the subject of consent and sexual violence in a responsible and sensitive manner.
flashing/flickering lights
This work contains flashing images which may affect viewers who are susceptible to photosensitive epilepsy.
