The movie opens with a bath scene in which viewers see a character's breasts. Two love scenes show skin, but no additional shots of sensitive body parts.

Wallis and Wally often strip down to their bras and panties or chemises.

In the version released in Australia the bath scene shows full frontal nudity, not just breasts, in a domestic violence context.

A male character flips up his kilt to briefly display his bare buttocks.

There's a disturbing amount of domestic abuse in the story.

Wallis is severely beaten by her first husband; she's kicked so hard that she miscarries (blood is shown pooling around her naked body).

Wally's husband also beats her after a verbal fight escalates into physical abuse. This includes choking and kicking.

Wallis slaps Wally.

A few instances of "f--k," "s--t," "f--king," and "bulls--t." However not frequent.

Insults include "trollop," "adulteress," etc.

A woman is called a f*cking c*nt" by her husband during an assault.

In both the '30s and the '90s, the characters chain-smoke cigarettes.

Wallis and Edward are rarely seen without a cocktail or champagne in hand, and much is made about her legendary drinks.

In one scene, Wallis and Edward drop Benzedrine into champagne and then act high.

Evgeni also smokes, and he and Wally have vodka. Several dinner parties have lots of drinking.

Wally takes fertility drugs, which she injects herself with throughout most of the movie.

There are some mature issues that aren't appropriate for younger teens.

There's considerable marital abuse.

Suitable for people 16 and over.
