This is contentious, but the film centres on psychological manipulation and techniques similar to gaslighting. Not in any specific relationship though.

While not classic kidnapping, characters are insinuated as being violently held against their will. This could potentially be upsetting to those with this trigger.

It's set in the 1950s, so there are outdated attitudes toward mental illness. Also, it includes some depictions of mental illness that are unrealistic in a way that could be offensive to some viewers.

Teddy/Andrew refuses to accept reality and is ultimately sent to be lobotomized. It is implied that he intentionally refused to accept that he killed his wife so the lobotomy could make him forget the past, essentially 'killing' him mentally.
