CLOUD ATLAS is a drama based on the novel by David Mitchell. Multiple storylines - set during the distant past, the present and the future - intertwine as people fight for love, justice and freedom with shared values that are passed through the generations.

Language

There are multiple uses of strong language ('f**k') and a single use of very strong language ('c**t').

Violence

There are several scenes of strong bloody violence. For example, during a battle between rival tribes, some people are hit with machetes, including sight of a man's throat being cut. Elsewhere in the film, characters are shot, resulting in blood spurts, and a man is thrown from a high rise flat, landing with a bloody impact on the pavement below.

Sex

Sex scenes include one in which a woman's bare breasts and buttocks are visible as she sits astride her partner and thrusts up and down. There are also some verbal sex references as a man is accused of sodomy.

The film also contains some verbal references to suicide and a man killing himself with a gun, off screen.

There is use of the word 'nigger' in a story set during the era of the slave trade.
