This is a bawdy and bitterly funny look at the ill-behaved, wildly dysfunctional upper crust, and how money corrupts.
Swans are run over and beheaded, a character commits suicide with a large barbecue fork. Someone is thrown in a car trunk with a dead body, and a character has an ear sliced off. Director Danny Boyle is not known for holding back on violence, so expect to see bloodshed and fisticuffs in this mafia-peppered kidnapping tale.
The eldest Getty is obsessed with sex and virility, speaks about it frequently, and lives with a "harem" of four women who dote on him romantically whenever he wishes. A doctor makes a house call to inject an illegal Viagra-like drug into Getty's penis. A character reads aloud from a book of erotica, and there are scenes of simulated intercourse and masturbation.
Many uses of "f--k," "s--t," "hell," "damn," "bastard," etc.
Drinking, Drugs & Smoking
The Getty family is plagued with drug and alcohol issues. A character commits suicide while under the influence of a cocktail of booze and barbiturates. Characters (including underage teens) are seen guzzling champagne. Cocaine is snorted, cigarettes and weed smoked.
