sex

A woman is upset by her husband’s adultery but reluctantly decides they will have a ‘modern marriage’ wherein they both have affairs. These affairs occur mostly off screen, but in one scene we see the husband publicly kissing another woman.

theme

A man with an alcohol addiction is frequently shown drinking to excess, contributing to the breakdown of his marriage.


A white man complains of being overworked by putting on an accent and calling himself ‘poor old Uncle Tom’. There are non-graphic references to the off-screen death of a new-born baby, and a discreet implied reference to suicide. A drunk man at a party holds a struggling woman and tries to kiss her, but she quickly manages to push him away. One man punches another, without causing visible injury.
