I wouldn't call it gaslighting - it's certainly repeated instances of lying, but paul and ellie aren't trying to make aster doubt herself or her sanity. Might still be triggering for some of course, but the intent is never to do any harm.

ellie gets drunk at a party. I don't think it counts as alcohol abuse. paul takes her home when he realises she's drunk and he takes care of her.

There are two separate kisses that surprise two girls. The first kiss was a genuine misunderstanding between a boy and a girl, the second was played as unexpected but romantic and the surprised girl smiled when they pulled apart, seeming to enjoy it.

Ellie's mother is dead. They talk about it, but they don't say how she died and they don't show anything on screen. She was already dead before the movie started.

At 1:01:40, after Ellie's been drinking and Paul says he needs to get her home, he stands her up and she ducks out of frame for a second. Audio, no visuals, the subtitles say she r*tches.

SPOILERS !!!



the ending is not /sad/, per se. the two girls don't end up together, but they kiss, and they're on good terms. ellie leaves for college and it is suggested that she and aster might become more than friends when she comes back. it's kind of an open ending
