A teacher who looks to be in his thirties is supposedly flirting with one of his teenage students. They are seen holding hands in a boat during one scene. He also kisses her on the cheek at one point. It is implied that the teacher is eventually fired for this reason.

Some very minor arguments/fist fights between characters, but nothing bloody or gory.

A young girl breaks a slate over a young man's head, but no injury is sustained.

There are no swear words at all - there is some general name-calling, but they are old-fashioned terms like "you ninny". The film is 100% safe for children to watch.

This probably doesn't really count, but a teenage girl with no religious upbringing is referred to as a "heathan" a few times.

Anne uses the word "Hell" once as she's reading a poem to the crowd.

In one scene, an underage character accidentally drinks alcohol. (She thinks it is a raspberry soda type of drink.) She is seen drunk, and vomiting in the bushes.

At the beginning of the movie, Anne is living with an emotionally abusive foster mother, her husband, and their many children. There is a lot of screaming and name-calling from the mother. At one point, she calls Anne "poor miserable trash that don't deserve no better".

A young girl dyes her hair green and lays in her bed, crying about how ugly she feels.

A character dies unexpectedly by having a heart attack in the fields. The funeral is shown, and we see the family crying afterward.

An approximately 4-year-old girl falls ill during one scene. She has the croupe and struggles to breathe. She is barely saved.

Two young girls jump onto a bed late at night, unaware that one of the girls' great-aunt is sleeping in it. The great-aunt gets very angry and calls them names.
