Maturity Rating Reason

Sex & Nudity
Sex & Nudity Reason
One schoolgirl explains to another what 'f*ck' (sex) is. A couple has sex in a forest while two schoolgirls watch - no nudity shown, only their legs can be seen from behind a log, and some sex/pleasure noises can be heard. Women and teenage girls are shown sometimes in their underwear, or undressing. Janet talks about cloud formations that look phallic (like penises), and her friends ask what 'phallic' means. There is a scene where Janet is having a bath (Part 3), and she is briefly seen topless. Janet meets a young man whilst in Spain (Part 3), and they begin a romantic/sexual relationship. In one scene he gropes and tries to undress her, but she says she has to leave. In a following bedroom scene, he removes her dress while kissing and groping her; they are then seen kissing and embracing on a bed, she is topless and her breasts can be seen, though she covers herself with bedclothes for most of this scene and looks awkward. Immediately following this there is a short scene where she is swimming fully nude while he watches; her breasts, buttocks and pubic hair are shown. There is also a scene where they sunbathe together and she is topless, but has underpants on; her breasts can be seen, and he kisses and gropes her.

Violence & Gore
Violence & Gore Reason
Janet's friend shows her scars on her legs and says they are from when her father hit her with his machine belt. Janet's older sister is beaten with a switch, which is not shown but can be heard while the girl screams.

Two schoolgirls use the word 'f*ck' in the context of discussing what sex is, and they don't realise it's a profanity. Janet tells her father that her older sister and a boy 'f*cked', and he becomes angry.
