BBFC - 15

   No one younger than 15 is allowed to view a ‘15’ film in a cinema. Anyone younger than 15 may not rent or buy a ‘15’ rated video work.
  Discriminatory language or behaviour must not be supported in the context of the film, drug use within the film can be shown however it must not be in anyway encourage the use of drugs.
   Horror or strong threat is permitted in films, it is not permitted if sexuality is involved.
   Hanging, suicide and self-harming are seen as imitable behaviour, they should not be dwelled on with detail to ensure that they not easy to copy. 
   Sexual activity may be showed however without using strong detail, this is the same for nudity, it may be showed in a sexual context but again without strong detail. Verbal references to sexual behaviour are allowed. Most very strong examples are not acceptable unless they are justified by context.
    Pain and injury in violence like the imitable behaviour should not be dwelled on. The strongest images are more then likely to be unacceptable. Strong sexualised violence is also unlikely to be acceptable. There may be detailed verbal’s to sexual violence but any that are seen to be sexual violence have to be discreet and have a strong contextual justification.
  For any 15 classified film there is no boundary to theme so long as it follows the classification for 15 year olds.
