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.

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

Not on screen, but a parent dies from suicide prior to the events of the film.

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.

Peter isn’t said to be autistic but it’s possible. He is bullied for traits that could be autistic

There are some quick sex sounds heard through a wall and non-sexual male nudity.

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.
