FPB Report (SA)
GenreDrama
LanguageModerate Impact and Fairly Frequent. Crude language is used in casual conversation or for moments of frustration. It is strongly disapproved of. However, this language is not recommended for impressionable children who are not cognitively developed enough and may try to emulate it or want to normalise language of this nature.
NudityLow and infrequent there is one fleeting moment of an art-work that has nudity on it.
SexNone (sic)
ViolenceLow and infrequent violence is displayed mainly in an emotional context between husband and wife but may be distrubing or distressing to much younger viewers.
PrejudiceFrequent Mild impact Prejudice deals with issues of gender discrimination seeing women as sterotypes in the home. This may be distressing, harmful, upsetting or inappropriate for impressionable younger children.
BlasphemyBlasphemy is Low impact and Infrequent and occurs by way of swear words or referring to icons or religious figures that might be offensive to certain religions. This is not suitable for younger children as they may find it harmful, disturbing or distressing.
Drug abuseNone (sic)
CommentsMature and complex themes in this film explore a mature, subservient, unhappy and sheltered woman with upper teenage boys, bored with he life as a housewife, cook, and church going wife. She finds a talent for puzzles and that she’s really good at it. She explores further and finds that her passion extends to more than just the Puzzle competition with her interesting and unusual Iranian puzzle partner. Torn between he family, new-found passion for life and finding her own personal freedom, she must choose how to manage the challenges of her new identity.
