SON OF RAMBOW is a comedy about two young schoolboys who form an unlikely friendship and together go on to make a short action adventure film.

Imitable Behaviour

The two principal characters mix blood, through self-inflicted cuts to the palms of their hands, during the course of a ‘blood brother’ ceremony. One of the boys uses a genuine crossbow to fire at a piggy bank balanced on his friend’s head and elsewhere in the work we see boys performing a stunt with a live electric wire. One character holds a toy gun to his head, acting out a suicide scene.

Smoking

One of the principal characters, a young boy who runs wild without parental supervision, smokes. Another young character also smokes.

Language

There is moderate bad language throughout (e.g. ‘spazzy’, ‘shit’, ‘cock’ and ‘bastard’).

There is some comic violence and we fleetingly observe minor bloody injuries on a couple of occasions. There are also some clips from the film FIRST BLOOD in which Rambo brandishes a large combat knife.
