sexual violence and sexual threat

There is a sustained scene of rape, in addition to another scene of attempted rape. References to sexual violence include sight of an online anti-women website page displaying message board titles such as ‘Bitches in Pain’ and ‘Gang Rape’ and commenter names including ‘No=yes’. In another scene a woman jokes that she wouldn’t mind being raped by a handsome man, provoking disapproval from her friend.


People are stabbed or slashed with blades, resulting in spurts of blood and strong bloody aftermath detail, and other scenes show a group of men restraining terrified women and threatening them with knives. There is use of strong language (‘f**k’). Male commenters on an online message board make misogynistic comments about women, including ones celebrating violence against women and using derogatory language such as ‘slut’ and ‘whore’; discrimination is not condoned. Other issues include occasional crude sex references, such as verbal references to ‘coming’ and ‘rim jobs’, and a strong scene of cocaine misuse.
