Apparently the female lead is verbally harassed at some point. There are some scenes where sexist things are discussed so maybe the harassment happens during one of those scenes.

Christopher, Alan’s childhood best friend and crush, dies, but nothing is shown. He receives the news from his headmaster and there is nothing very triggering other than the fact that a character dies and it affects another one emotionally.

Turing's behaviour is depicted as a heavy autism-stereotype. He doesn’t understand jokes, takes common expressions literally, is very anti-social and unlikeable to many, and seems to not care about the emotions of others. According to some critiques, this is nowhere near a true representation of what the real Alan Turing actually was like.

As someone who is autistic and and lives with someone who is also autistic… it is very obvious to me that Alan Turing’s character is portrayed as autistic. He is not bullied for this specifically as it is never specified that he IS autistic, however he does get routinely bullied for his Autism traits in this film.

Although very mildly, a police officer does refer to Alan Turing as a "poof", a British derogatory term for gay people.

The main character, who is revealed to be gay, kills himself after the movie ends. Nothing is shown on screen. He is also shown to be taking medicine that will chemically castrate him, which was the government’s punishment for gay men during that time and could be triggering.

It is based on a real life story, and Alan Turing died of cyanide poisoning, widely believed to be suicide. So it does not have a happy ending
