THE GODFATHER is a 1972 US drama about a New York crime family.

Violence

There are scenes in which men are shot. There is also a scene in which a hit man has his hand pinned to the counter of a bar whilst being throttled from behind with a ligature. In another scene, a man wakes up in bed, covered in blood, and with the severed head of his favourite horse in bed next to him.

There are some moderate sex and sex references, infrequent strong language (eg 'f**k'), and some racist language (eg 'nigger', 'wop' and 'guinea').
