Some of the comments here have over-stated the level of graphic content and made me unnecessarily nervous watching this film. We do not hear the dog being killed. There is no blood, no sign of the wound, no close-up of the dog's face. The dog is delivered to Lucas's front door in a garbage bag and the upper part of her body is revealed. We mostly see the top of her head and her tongue sticking out. Afterward, we see a few middle distance shots of Lucas digging her grave with her body resting alongside, then of Lucas lifting her. They obviously trained the dog to lie still and quiet and limp, they did not use a stand-in, so in that regard it is quite realistic. Use your discretion, obviously, and know your limits, but though I despise any instance of a dog being introduced only to be killed, I would not classify this as "very graphic". Time stamps provided by others here are also not quite on. A rock is thrown through Luas's kitchen window at about the 1:20 mark. To avoid the dog scene entirely, skip ahead from here to 1:24:08.

No, but the plot is about a man wrongly accused of sexually assaulting a child.

Lucas's girlfriend closes his dog in another room, behind a frosted glass door, so that they can have uninterrupted sex. The camera lingers for a moment on the glass, where the dog's shape can be seen standing and the dog can be heard whining. The dog whimpers throughout the sex scene.

Not explicitly, but the circumstances around the death of Lucas's dog may be triggering in this category for some viewers, as it is clearly a planned act occurring on or near his property.

(SPOILER)


Something similar to gaslighting does happen, but kind of in the opposite direction. A child admits to lying, but is told by adults that the lies are true (the adults are not intending to trick the child, they genuinely believe what they’re saying)

The plot revolves around a man wrongfully accused of pedophilia, so there are frequent mentions of sexual abuse of a child.

There are multiple scenes of physical violence in this film as tensions rise and nearly all of them include one or more involved parties being pulled away and/or held back to prevent further fighting. In one scene, a grown man grabs a teenager and to prevent him running away/fighting back and hits him multiple times. Restraints such as handcuffs, rope, etc. are not depicted.

not technically, but the entire plot is centered around child sexual abuse and they clearly push the narrative that false accusations ruin lives. it’s a difficult watch if sa is a trigger, and it is not handled well

There is some swearing and name-calling, but no hate speech. Someone please provide details if I'm mistaken. I don't understand why this was rated a "yes" so many times and all other related categories here are overwhelmingly rated "no".
