Precuts information

During post-production, the distributor sought and was given advice on how to secure the desired classification. Following this advice, certain changes were made prior to submission

Note: The following text may contain spoilers

The BBFC was given a draft script before the film was produced and advised the company that a film of the script would be likely to receive a '15' classification. In order to achieve the company's preferred '12A' classification, the BBFC advised that some visual and verbal sex references should be removed, that sight of potentially harmful behaviour should be removed, that use of strong language should be reduced, and that a scene in which drugs are prepared and taken should be substantially reduced. When the film was submitted for classification, the changes recommended at the script stage had been made and the film was classified '12A'.
