Note: The following text may contain spoilers

I’M NOT THERE is a biographical drama based on the life and works of the iconic singer-songwriter Bob Dylan, with six different actors covering seven distinct stages in his career.

Language

There is frequent use of strong language (‘f**k’ and ‘c**ksucker’) as well as some infrequent use of racist language used towards the protagonist when he is portrayed as a young black boy in 1950s/60s America.

Sex

There are strong sex references and some breast nudity in a brief love scene which is otherwise lacking in detail.

Nudity

There is one brief shot of male frontal nudity as a character is seen standing naked in front of a mirror.

Tablets, identified in the narrative as ‘Mandies’ (Mandrax), are visible although we do not see them being taken and the work as a whole does not promote or encourage the use of drugs. There is also a scene of a post mortem but it lacks graphic detail.
