We see Effie in a bathtub between 53:00-54:25, it's not sexual. We later see Everett skinny-dipping from a distance around 1:06:00.

Effie is at one point described as having distressing hallucinations that her skin is covered in bark. She looks at her hand in disgust and screams shortly before this is revealed.

Effie has constant stress due to the conditions of her marriage, to the point that she loses a great deal of hair. Also, after she is sexually assaulted she hallucinates bark covering her skin and screams at the sight.

Effie’s mother is said to have miscarried several times. A miscarriage occurs during the movie but we only learn about it through a letter. John does make aggressive remarks indicating that it is the mother’s fault because she gets pregnant too often. This is played as a horrific thing to say and character’s present react with disgust.

Effie is shown as having various physical ailments due to depression and possible anxiety. Her symptoms are disregarded and she is blamed for them.

Many remarks are made about people being, appearing, or behaving in a way that is “stupid”. This is a part of the common emotional abuse throughout the movie.

While no physical relationships are known to occur, John’s relationship with his parents could best be described as covert (often called emotional) incest. It is quite blatant and disturbing.

In one scene Effie puts her head underwater (in a bathtub) while reliving a memory, then emerges from the water gasping for breath.
