Sex & Nudity

  • There is brief kissing throughout the movie.
  • A man is having an affair, we later learn he is married.
  • A man and a woman are naked in bed, presumably having sex but not much is shown.
  • A woman takes off a man's shirt and his bear upper body is seen. There is kissing and sensuous movement. He kisses her neck and her nipple is barely visible at the corner of the screen.
  • Men and women are shown in various states of partial undress after being discovered in a private wing of the court during festivities. Women breasts are briefly shown, men are bare chested, and others are partially covering themselves. No sex is seen, however it is obvious that licentious activities are occurring. Then one of the men appears cross-dressed in women's clothing.
  • A woman is dead lying in bed and there is brief full frontal nudity.
  • A woman is seen walking and then standing in a sheer white gown with nothing underneath. Her breasts and nipples are clearly visible and the side of her hip. Her front lower region is a bit obscured by the angle of her body to the viewer.
  • There is a graphic sex scene between a man and a woman while the guards kill the men. The man is shown thrusting between the woman's legs and there are close up shots of nudity including their legs, her breasts, his buttocks and the thrusting.
  • A man and woman have sex standing in a dark hall. Moaning is heard and explicit sexual sounds with movement but no actual nudity is seen. As the sexual activity becomes more vigorous, the woman is heard screaming, but there is an overlap between this being a potentially sexual sound and this leading into a situation of peril where she is screaming from fear/discomfort.
