no character is pedophilic. however, the filmmakers gave all the viewers an upskirt camera shot of a minor charactor, played by a minor actress. possible they used a stunt double but it is meant to be a 17yo girl.

Not physically assaulted. Verbal assault does happen though. One character asks another character if she’s ever been felt up and if she’s a virgin. That same character looks in between her legs while he’s under the table. He’s about to “look closer at it” but is stopped.
