violence
People are punched and elbowed in crunchy fashion during a moderate fist fight. A man behaves in a controlling manner towards his sister, and in one scene kicks her boyfriend in the chest and strikes her face when she tries to intervene.
threat and horror
In a sustained scene of mild threat, a drunk man arms himself with a gun to confront another man. The situation is eventually defused without injury, however.
language
Bad language includes ‘shit’, ‘crap’, ‘bloody’, ‘badass’, ‘freaking’, ‘screwed up’, ‘damn’, ‘hell’ and ‘God’.
discrimination
A man’s friends and family, including the main character, react with shock, anger or distress after learning that he is engaged to another man. However, the other characters eventually change their views and support the relationship, and the film as a whole carries a message of tolerance and acceptance.
drugs
A person is briefly referred to as a ‘stoner’.
injury detail
A man is seen with a mildly bloody bandage on his forehead following a physical assault. Further mild bloody detail is glimpsed after a wild boar is shot off screen.
rude humour
There is a comic reference to ‘taking a dump’.
theme
Mild upsetting scenes include heated family arguments, as well as scenes in which a man’s romantic relationship suffers due to his family’s homophobic attitude.
flashing/flickering lights

alcohol and smoking

suicide and self-harm
A person briefly talks about killing himself, but it is clear that he does not mean it literally. Later, a drunk man places a gun in another man's hands during an argument and tries to goad him into shooting him.
