Sex & Nudity

  • Discussion between the sisters of sexual experiences, very tame. Display of a birth control device.
  • Both sisters have sex with their husbands, not graphic, no nudity.

Violence & Gore


  • Uses of f*** and variants.

Alcohol, Drugs & Smoking

  • Cigarette smoking and drinking in social settings be extras, far less than would actually have occurred.

Frightening & Intense Scenes

  • The scenes which show Jackie's decline in health are upsetting, particularly in the last 20 minuetes of the film when she is continually convulsing, becomes almost paralysed and is frightened.
