There are several sexual scenes in the film.

The strongest consists of a flashback of the main character walking in on his girlfriend having sex with another man. In the flashback, the woman is shown lying on her back, breasts fully exposed, thrusting heavily into the man. There is a clear shot of the couple thrusting and brief close-up shots of the woman's pubic region as well. The impact of this scene is made stronger with her sexual moans and heavy breathing.

The simulated sexual activity depicted above is not excessive.

In two other sex scenes, the main character has sex with his girlfriend. The womans breasts are exposed but in these sequences, the focus is on upper body movements and facial expressions only.

There is a strong scene of violence in the film where a woman shoots herself in the head, involving graphic depictions of blood spurting.

The film also contains the pervasive use of the profanity 'f**k' uttered out of anger and/or frustration.

Stronger expletives such as 'motherf**ker' and 'p*ssies' are uttered infrequently by the various characters.

'Bellflower' is a drama film about two young men who build flamethrowers and an imaginary gang. One of them, Woodrow, gets into a relationship with a woman he meets at the bar, only to walk in on her having sex with another man not long after. Outraged, he hooks up with her best friend but finds himself not being able to forget her.
