SONNY CAPONE is a crime comedy drama in which the Irish-born head of the Rome Mafia returns to Dublin to avenge the murder of a son he never knew he had.

Language

There is very strong language ('c**t'), some of which is directed aggressively by men to women and is accompanied by violence and threat. There is also frequent strong language ('f**k'). Milder bad language includes uses of 'prick', 'bitch', 'bollocks', 'balls', 'bastard', 'crap', 'shit', 'shite', 'piss' and 'Jesus Christ'.

Violence

Strong violence includes beatings, shootings, an attack with a meat cleaver and strangulation, with bloody aftermath detail.

There is sight of breast nudity as a woman rides a man in a brief scene of strong sex. There are references to drug misuse and drug dealing. There is bad taste humour as a caricature Middle Eastern terrorist character declares that, rather than beheading an Israeli prisoner, the man will be killed in a gas chamber; in a later scene the terrorist is filming the execution and the naked prisoner is seen being placed in a shower cubicle into which gas is released.
