CLOSED CIRCUIT is a thriller about two lawyers whose lives are placed in danger when they defend a terrorist and become caught up in a government conspiracy. It is rated 15 for strong language and moderate violence.

Language

There is use of strong language ('f**k').

Violence

There is a scene in which a man strangles another man from behind. We see brief shots of the struggle, which are intercut with a conversation between two other characters, then sight of the dead man hanging by a makeshift noose in an attempt to suggest that the man took his own life. In another scene, a woman is attacked by a man in her own home. The man grabs the woman by the throat, after which she smashes a glass over his head and bites him on his arm, managing to escape. In a further scene, a man grabs a woman from behind and starts to strangle her, but he is soon hit with a crowbar by another character. The scene takes place at night and there is little detail.

At one point, a teenage boy fills a sink with water, plugs in a hair drier and throws it into the water. He does this in order to short out the power to the room, so that he can escape without being seen by cameras.
