Just using this field to give people a heads up that this is the type of movie where everything is deliberately very disturbing- a "feel bad" movie, if you will. I wanted to mention it, because the overall vibe / theme of the movie is much more difficult than the sum of it's triggers.

not physical abuse, but I would say the main character's parents are very emotionally abusive and negligent towards her

Not violence, but Dawn's parents are extremely negligent of her to the point they don't even notice when she goes missing

Students at the school bully Dawn and call her offensive names based on her last name and proposed sexual orientation. Words like f****t and "lesbo" are used throughout the film.
