STARRED UP is a British drama in which a violent young offender is sent to an adult prison, where he joins his father who is already an inmate.

Language

There is use of very strong language ('c**t'), often delivered aggressively. The film also includes frequent use of strong language ('f**k').

Violence

There is strong violence throughout as prisoners fight amongst themselves or against prison officers. Two fight sequences involve bladed weapons. In one, a character is slashed twice across the face with an improvised weapon made from a small razor blade and a plastic toothbrush. In the other, a character is stabbed and killed with a conventional knife. Both assaults result in bloodshed but little is seen in terms of injury detail.

There is natural male nudity. There are also some strong verbal sex references.
