Spoilers

The Parents Guide items below may give away important plot points.

Sex & Nudity

  • A woman is raped by different rapists over multiple nights. None of the scenes include nudity or screaming; for each, we only see many quick-cut close-up shots accompanied by the sound of a ticking clock. In total, this occurs four times in the movie, one of which includes skin, though it is not obvious which part of the human body is being shown.
