Sex & Nudity

  • References are made to a school where underage boys were abused physically and sexually. One character says "I hope you were raped" to an adult who had attended as a child. Nothing is shown.
  • References to rape and childhood sexual assault

Violence & Gore

  • Two teenage boys are very suddenly shot and killed. They're shown flying backwards with minor blood spray. Their corpses are shown later underwater with bullet holes and blood visible. Not gory, but very shocking.
  • A man is tackled and has his arm twisted and broken. Not explicitly shown, but crunching is heard.
  • A man is viciously attacked offscreen. We hear screaming and fighting. The attacker then bashes his head several times with a fire extinguisher. While the impacts aren't shown, we see the aftermath. Extremely bloody and visceral.
  • A man suddenly shoots and kills several teenagers in a car. While most of it is offscreen, screams are heard and a little blood is seen.
  • A man's head is brutally beaten with a rock. We see a very bloody wound. He's then shot in the head and killed.
  • A man's nose is broken by a car door
  • A woman falls out of a moving car. She's seen very bloodied and scratched up. She then intentionally jumps off a cliff, presumably to her death. Her body is later seen being carried away by rapids, but it's ambiguous whether or not she's dead.
  • References are made to systemic child abuse. A character describes witnessing a boy's swastika tattoo being violently scrubbed off with steel wool. Nothing is shown
