Hunters shoot an elephant for ivory; this scene is shown to share the memory of pain and is meant to be sad, but it is still difficult to watch.

A male character was taught what kissing is, so he demonstrates it (against community rules) on a nervous and surprised female character without talking her through it. This part was not in the book. It can be hard to take.

Technically there is a hospital in the film - for baby care. But it is mostly in a positive tone with birth and children.

All the flashbacks are shot with shakey cam that could possibly be described as strobe lights.

Multiple flashbacks/memories shown in this movie are filmed with strobe lights. As someone who isn’t affected by strobe lighting, it even made me feel ill.

Not really misgendering, but in the beginning, Asher makes a joke about Jonas being assigned the job of a birthmother.
