Everyone except Augie's family leaves the city without saying goodbye after the lockdown is cancelled. Some people leave behind contacts so is more positive than bittersweet in my opinion.

Not necessarily stalked but they look through a window at someone just as they’ve got out the shower without them knowing for a second. The person doesn’t mind but still.

The father of the kid who is always challenging says he will choke his son if he presses the button and he does. Is shown him chasing and tackling his son.
He doesn't die from it.

note on the other comment: i would say "implied to be lgbt" undersells things: the character in question has a wall of naked cowboy photos. and he and his partner don't just kiss, they sleep together and are textually in a relationship. even if the death is only spoken out loud at the end, a very key theme in this movie is grieving the death of an intimate partner. as an lgbt person, the death is absolutely respectful/tasteful and not on a bury your gays level if that affects things

There’s mentions of atheism and religion, as well as some comments about not understanding the point, plus the general existentialism a movie about alien life carries. So existentialism is heavily present throughout but it’s not explicitly dwelled upon as much as you might expect
