No, but the teen girl's father, with whom she lives alone after her mother left him, has an "abusive husband" vibe up until a certain point on in the movie. We don't see him hitting his daughter or anyone else, but he's an alcoholic who shouts and dominates.

The teen girl's father is an alcoholic whose life has gone wrong and whose pain comes out as aggression. To paint a picture: We see him sitting in his living room in dim lighting, surrounded by bottles and cans, shouting at his daughter. (We also see him being loving and trying to save her, though.)

A character vomits off-screen after seeing a train crash. Later in the movie, there is a character who visibly vomits on-screen (Spoilers) it's while a monster is attacking the truck he is in. (Spoilers end)
