Not really, but one could assume that a rabbit that was dissected was going to be a pet before said dissection happens.

Yes. Although it doesn’t appear to be widely talked about, grooming, sexualization of a teenager, and psychological abuse are evident in the entire film.

No. But there is horse abuse. The real kind sadly, not acting.

A rabbit is killed off screen for dissection. Can’t remember the exact time, but the dead rabbit is seen soon after the maid leaves the kitchen with a carrot because she wants to see it and feed it to him, not knowing it’s dead.

Really disliked the scene in which a horse is scared out of its mind by having a cloth repeatedly thrown/smacked in the face. The horse nearly falls trying to get away from the actor. Acting or not: there is no animal friendly way to create reactions like this. I can’t believe these things still happen to defenceless animals that have no idea it’s “just acting”. There should’ve been a better alternative with all the CGI that is available. Bad move on the producer’s part here…

EDIT: I’ve been working with horses all my life and I know the difference between “learned tricks” and natural behaviour. I know what I’m talking about that’s why the scene upsets me so much. This horse was scared far beyond what should be allowed within animal welfare guidelines.

At around 20:42 there's a dead cow with its insides on the ground and its head on the table. At around1:29:58 there's a dead cow on the road shown from many angles.

A character drinks untill they're unwell (headaches and vomiting) due to the bullying of another character. Which could be seen as a form of self harm.

The boy runs his fingers across the teeth of his comb. His mother says it gives her shivers, like when chalk scraped across the blackboard when she was in school.
