Spoiler warning. Most of the initial sexual activity from Jennifer in Pleasantville does break informed consent. The tone of the film does not portray this as assault. However later in the film a woman is cornered by multiple men commenting on what is under her dress and making suggestive comments. Another instance of a female character with her clothing a little awry running from a group of boys is seen a few moments later, but she says she is okay.

Spoiler alert

Based on paintings and seeing her asleep on his chest it is suggested that Betty has an affair with Bill (I think his name was). There is no actual proof of sex but definitely emotionally she was unfaithful to her husband. She does, immediately following this, "leave him" (as best as one can in Pleasantville)

A bath is taken, water running and a woman entering the bath with steam. No nudity shown. Faucet it shown filling the tub and at one point dripping.


Spoiler ahead
She does masturbate in the bath, and right before hand drops her robe and admires herself in a mirror.

The word coloreds is used derogatively but not directly referencing black people (to note, there aren't any black people in the movie). The overlaying theme at this point though is reminiscent of segregation and hatred of anything "unpleasant".
