Note: The following text may contain spoilers

THE EDGE OF LOVE is a romantic drama set during and shortly after the Second World War following Dylan Thomas, the celebrated Welsh poet, and the two women who featured prominently in his life at that time.

Language

There is infrequent use of strong language (‘f**k’) and frequent use of mild bad language.

Injury detail

There are infrequent, brief gory images of a battlefield amputation in a wartime context. There is also a protracted scene in which we see in close-up a deep cut to a female character’s forehead being sutured.

There are two sex scenes, one of which includes brief breast nudity. Some moments of moderate violence occur, including a sequence where a character is beaten up, although little detail is visible. In another scene a male character hits his wife, knocking her to the ground, and a bruise is later discernible on her jaw. Also, in keeping with the period in which the film is set the majority of the characters smoke heavily, although the activity is neither promoted nor encouraged.
