Multiple scenes of graphic rape. Two are right at the beginning of the film, one appears midway through. Pervasive threat of rape from others as it’s a major theme of the film

There around 4-5 separate instances of on-screen rape in the movie. The scenes are excruciating, but filmed with empathy, focusing on the women's faces, what they're seeing, and not their bodies. There is no nudity, but the scenes are still very upsetting.

White people accuse the Aboriginal people of cannibalism, but this seems to be a scare/intimidation tactic they use to threaten each other and slander the Aboriginal people. No cannibalism happens.

One man's nose is broken after being punched in the face repeatedly, and later his nose is shown lacerated and crooked. Another man is beat in the face with the butt of a gun, and his injuries, among which are likely broken bones (jaw, eye sockets, teeth, etc), are shown but not discussed.

No. The movie serves as a thorough indictment of imperialism and its perpetrators. The soldiers are shown to be equal parts sadistic and unskilled. Craven little men, indiscriminately raping and murdering. The sergeant abuses his power, refusing to let Clare go long after her sentence is up, so that he can continue raping her.

Kind of. An aboriginal woman's nipple is exposed in multiple scenes, including a rape scene, but while that may fit the criteria, it didn't necessarily feel like a "nude scene," for whatever reason.

The Aboriginal people are seen living in tents after their families are killed and are effectively homeless. Another family watches their house burn down, and it's likely they are made homeless thereafter.
