Note: The following text may contain spoilers

XXY is an Argentinean drama about a 15 year old hermaphrodite Alex, who lives in a quiet fishing community, much to the confusion and fascination of the local villagers.

Language

There is strong language (‘f**k’) and lesser terms (eg 'jerk', 'prick' and 'shit').

Sex

Two characters have confused but consensual sex involving a reversal of gender roles as the hermaphrodite character has anal sex with a boy. Nudity is reserved to breasts and buttocks only, with a very brief glimpse of pubic hair. There is also a scene showing a character masturbate. The scene is filmed from behind, revealing buttock nudity only and quickly cutting to a close up of his face as he climaxes.

Violence

A brief scene of sexual assault features a character being attacked by a group of local male teenagers.
