Mathilda is physically abused by her father and it is implied that Leon has sexual thoughts about Mathilda and returns her (childish) attraction to some degree. He does not act on these implied feelings.

Alcohol abuse is not a major focus but some minor characters are shown drinking excessively and 12-year-old Mathilda quickly downs a glass of champagne.

The family of Mathilda (Natalie Portman's character) is murdered, including her four-year-old brother and her older teenage sister. The young boy's death is not directly shown but you see him trying to escape and it's an intense and upsetting scene. Mathilda herself does NOT die.

When Mathilda returns to the home where her family was murdered we see many ruined toys scattered around, and she picks up a stuffed rabbit and takes it with her. However, the focus is on her grief for her brother, not the toys.

No one vomits. On two occasions, a man chokes on milk after being complimented (the second time is worse, but not too upsetting). Another man has a strange reaction to a pill in a public restroom that causes him to cough and choke briefly. He leans down in a sink to splash water on his face right after.

[SPOILERS] There is an act of self-sacrifice where one character dies to save another. There is also an intense scene where Mathilda holds a gun to her head and threatens to shoot herself, daring Leon to stop her (he does stop her but the scene could be triggering).

There is no actual incest but take care if you're sensitive to this theme. Leon and Mathilda are not related but have a father-daughter-like relationship. But she declares that she loves him romantically and makes sexual advances toward him several times. He discourages her interest in him, but it could still be upsetting for some viewers.
