language

There is infrequent partial use of strong language (eg “motherfu--”). Other terms include 'bitch', ‘piss’, ‘asshole’, ‘shit’, ‘bugger’, 'hell' and ‘crap’.

sex

Occasional moderate sex references include a sequence in which an eccentric therapist suggests methods of ‘humiliating’ his patient including hitting him or tying him up; the patient notes that this sounds more like ‘perversion’ than therapy.


A man makes a passing discriminatory comment about work in Scotland being simpler because they won't be "dealing with a bunch of Indians”. The film as a whole does not condone discrimination.
