Note: The following text may contain spoilers

SONGBIRD is a British comedy drama in which a fading rock star enrolls at university after her band breaks up.


There is use of strong language ('f**k'). Milder terms include 'prick', 'shit', 'ass', 'balls' and 'piss'. There is also infrequent use of the term 'pansy', but the work as a whole does not endorse discrimination.

Moderate sex references include a sequence in which two women bet on which of them can have sex first, specifying that sex will be defined as a "penis in your body". A comic scene shows two couples stripping down to their underwear in preparation for group sex. Another scene contains brief male rear nudity. There are also infrequent verbal references to drug misuse.
