Not exactly, there's a scene where the mom is watching TV and you see a hazy figure behind her but when she turns around it's gone. Also there is a scene at the end where the dead brothers are in the afterlife, but they're not ghosts

Once you see two married characters walking down the church steps, leave the theater for about four minutes. All you’ll really
miss is a conversation about the married character’s wife being pregnant.

Although they don’t necessarily show graphic depictions of the deaths, I found these scenes to be EXTREMELY triggering for me. So here are the specifics that were so upsetting for me:

*SOME SPOILERS*
1. You see how hurt and depressed both are leading up to their death. One you watch swallow pills and staring at himself in a mirror, and then walking off to where he’s eventually found, it was painful. The other you hear the gun shot while his brother is frantically looking for him.
2. You see and hear (in their voice) the letters they left behind
3. Watching loved ones discovering what happened and then grieving
4. For one of the deaths you see his body, but upper half is hidden behind a tree. But then he is picked up and carried by surviving brother, laid on a table, and shown lying on the table a few times.

Also, a father (and mom in less clear ways) is very pushy that boys don’t cry and shouldn’t feel emotions. While grieving they are watched closely for signs of emotions and in turn leads to them being ridiculed or ignored when in mental health crisis
