ROCKETMAN is a British musical drama based on the life and career of singer, songwriter and musician Elton John.

Drugs

People are shown snorting cocaine and using bongs. There are occasional references to drug and alcohol addiction.

Sex

A large group of people are shown writhing and thrusting together during a stylised orgy sequence, without visible nudity. Another scene features a short sequence of below-frame oral sex.

Language

There is infrequent use of very strong language ('c**t'), in addition to more frequent use of strong language ('f**k'). Milder terms include 'cock', 'bitch', 'prick', 'twat', 'arsehole', 'shit' and 'bastard'. There is also infrequent use of homophobic terms including 'fag', 'fairy' and 'poofter'; the work as a whole does not condone discriminatory language or behaviour.

Infrequent moderate violence includes a sequence in which one man slaps another. In another scene a man is shown overdosing on prescription pills.
