Kids are seen getting bullied and picked on throughout the film, including the protagonist, but there doesn't seem to be any long-term abuse happening at home for any character.

The main character's father is on prescription antidepressants. Later in the film, the main character steals a handful and takes them all at once.

Oliver explains his plan to poison the dog and burns the remains of the dog with Jordana. he doesn’t actually poison the dog and we only see the barrel burning, not the actual dog, but could be distressing.

The ocean is one of the main visual motifs in the film. Anyone severely afraid of the ocean would do best to avoid this film entirely.

I don't know why there are five "no" votes for this.

It happens without warning but it's over quick. About 50 minutes in, Oliver stands up and says he's going out. Once he walks down the steps and stands in front of Graham's van, it happens suddenly but is over quick. There is visual and audio but if you skip about fifteen seconds once he is walking down the steps, you'll be fine.

About 48 minutes in the main character spits on the front of a van out of spite. About two-three seconds and it’s dark and hard to see.
