Based on a true scandal that stunned 1920’s England, Wicked Little Letters centres on neighbours Edith Swan and Rose Gooding in the seaside town of Littlehampton. One day a series of scandalous and obscene letters begin to target Edith and the other residents, with suspicion immediately falling upon fiery Rose.

As the letters continue to escalate, Rose risks losing both her freedom and the custody of her daughter. Police officer Gladys Moss is determined to find the real culprit and along with another group of other women, seeks to solve this perplexing mystery.

  • Information about screenings with descriptive subtitles

    Descriptive subtitles, sometimes referred to as subtitles for D/deaf and hard-of-hearing people or captions, transcribe dialogue and relevant aspects of the soundtrack, including music and sound effects, attempting to give D/deaf and hard-of-hearing viewers an equal experience to those who are able to watch films without descriptive subtitles. Descriptive subtitles would include speech identifiers and descriptive elements such as [door slamming] and [kettle whistling].

  • BBFC rating information (may contain spoilers)


    Mild, undetailed violence, played for comic effect, includes an altercation in which a woman punches and head butts a man, and a woman is knocked out by a blow with a spade.

    Threat and horror

    Graffiti on a woman’s front door refers to her as a ‘dirty slut’, and is one of a number of threatening moves made against her.


    There is infrequent very strong language (‘c**t’). There is also frequent strong language (‘f**k’), often used in the sexual sense. Milder bad language includes uses of ‘bitch’, ‘whore’, ‘twat’, ‘wanker’, ‘cock’, ‘pussy’, ‘slut’, ‘tart’, ‘strumpet’, ‘arse’, ‘arsehole’, ‘shit’, ‘bastard’, ‘bloody’, ‘bugger’, ‘piss’, ‘sod’, ‘balls’, ‘tits’, ‘God’ and ‘Jesus’.


    The contents of a series of ‘poison pen’ letters and angry exchanges between characters include comically crude sex references alluding to oral and anal sex, intercourse and bestiality.


    A woman police officer is constantly demeaned in a sexist manner by her colleagues and a member of the public. There are also uses of homophobic language, such as “nancy boys” and “queers”, which, like the sexism, are placed in the historic context of the film which challenges such attitudes.

    Sexual violence and sexual threat

    A passing comment is made about rapists in prisons.

    Rude humour

    Very mild rude humour includes a spirited woman baring her buttocks to police as they chase her, and fart jokes.


    An elderly father exerts insidious control over his adult daughter as he voices his expectations of her duty to him, and at one point this turns into physically threatening behaviour. There is a psychological effect on the woman, which includes a discreet implication that she harms herself. There are mild upsetting scenes centred on bereavement.

    Alcohol and tobacco

    Cigarette smoking is reflective of the historical period in which the film is set, and includes smoking by a child for which she is told off by her mother.
