Note: The following text may contain spoilers

THE EXPRESS is a drama based on the true story of Ernie Davis, the American football player who became the first African-American to win the coveted Heisman trophy.

Language

Mild bad language includes 'bullshit', 'shit' and 'ass'. Racist terms used include 'spook' and 'nigger' as well as comments such as 'kick your black ass back to Africa'. These terms are used to illustrate the state of

race relations in the United States in the 1950s and 1960s, and are not condoned.

There is some brief mild violence during fights and scuffles on the field.

There is a very mild sexual scene in which Davis and his girlfriend are lying on the bed, and he unbuttons her shirt to reveal her bra.
