Assault is not a "strong word," it's the appropriate word. Kissing someone forcefully or without their consent is assault.

I would consider many of the events in the film to be mild to moderate psychological torture, but there's no physical torture.

There's an implication that it might have happened, but it's unconfirmed and not shown, in any case.

There is a bath scene involving two women, at least one of whom has strong feelings of a sort toward the other, but no nudity or overt sexuality is shown.

There is speculation that one person who's discussed but never seen in the movie might have committed suicide but it's never confirmed. There's also an implication, caused by a rather ambiguous ending, that one of the actual characters did the same, but it seems unlikely to me and isn't shown at all, in any case.

There is one brief mention of abortion, veiled in euphemism, but it's immediately rejected and not mentioned again.

There is no overt antisemitism but there is brief joking about it. It could be offensive to some.

One of the main characters is mocked and otherwise treated badly by her husband and others due to her mental illness (depression, anxiety, agoraphobia).
