TOMMY is a musical drama, from 1975, following a young man who has lost his senses after witnessing his father's murder.

Violence

The young man is subjected to physical and, it is implied, sexual abuse. One man covers his head with a bag, burns him with a cigarette and kicks him down stairs. Another begins to remove his clothes with the intention of 'fiddling about'.

There is moderate violence, together with drug references and bloody images. A strip club is decorated with posters, some of which feature breast nudity.
