The dog doesn't die, but in one scene where Mary chases the dog on the Moors, the dog's leg gets caught in a trap. The leg is injured for quite awhile afterwards, but eventually heals.

Colin is lied to by his father his whole life. Colin is told he has a hunchback and is dying from an illness (and is kept in his room because of this), neither of which are true. Colin forgives his father at the end of the movie.

When Colin first goes to the garden and is shown sitting on a rock by the water, large butterflies rest on Mary throughout the remainder of the scene. Right after Colin is left in the stream to splash around, there is a scene where the three children let tons of ants and lady bugs crawl across their hands.

No one falls to their death, but after Mary first climbs the wall she found in the woods, she falls off the top of it, and there is a POV shot and then onlooker shot of her falling and then tumbling down a steep hill. While escaping from the burning building, Mary and Colin's father fall down the main staircase and don't get up for about a minute, but they both survive.

There’s a scene when she’s talks to the boy in the bed and a guy jumps from under the sheets in the dark. That would scare someone. It caught me off guard

On two different occasions, Mary asks Dickon and then Colin to keep the garden a secret. In both of these scenes, they then spit into their hands before shaking hands.

There are flashes of war that may include hospital like scenes, a person is taken to the hospital but we don't see details, and there is an invalid who is confined to bed in a home. But not an extended obvious hospital with white coated nurses, if that makes sense.

Not cancer, but there's a flashback scene/memory of a character dying of a long, fatal illness.

Colin panics several times. It's treated as if it's behavioral, and he recovers quickly, but is uncomfortable to watch.

The camera is handheld and wobbles slightly throughout the movie. The camera bounces around during running scenes. There are a few dizzying shots, such as when the camera tumbles around after Mary falls off the top of a wall, and there is heavy image distortion while Mary swims underwater to get across a stream.

A few times throughout the movie, Mary pressures Colin into getting in his wheelchair, and then pushes the chair to places he begs her not to take him to, usually while going at a high speed that scares Colin. Additionally, Colin is manhandled a few times, and Mary constantly pressures Colin to get out of the house he has been in for years, despite the fact that he believes he has severe pollen allergies and doesn't want to use his wheelchair. Also see the 'is someone gaslighted' section.

There is minor blood and gore on the dog's leg after it is caught in a trap (see the 'does the dog die' section), and when Dickon first sees the dog in the garden he mentions that the wound is rotting.

No guns are shown, but at the beginning of the movie, for the entire time Mary is alone in India, there are gunshots occasionally heard.
