The film is about cultural gaslighting and the way that society allows men to abuse women without any consequences to their own lives. Characters discuss how a woman had been sexually assaulted and none of her friends believed her at the time, reporting the assault had no result, and the woman's life was ruined, while the man was able to go on to a successful career, reputation, and relationship despite never having changed.

there's a dialogue in which someone says that a teenager is alone with a group of guys that might rape her, but then she says that it wasn't true (so the teenager is safe and we never see any violence towards her)

Addiction

A character snorts lines of cocaine. He offers it to a woman, who refuses it, so he rubs it on her gums. Lots of drinking and discussing drinking alcohol to the point of blacking out. Someone's alcohol is drugged.

The first scene of the film shows a man targeting a woman who appears drunk in a bar. He kisses her and begins to undress her as she protests, although she stops it and nothing is shown further. In another scene, a man plies a woman with drugs and begins kissing her and touching her legs as she says she needs to go home, before she stops it and confronts him. Multiple characters discuss a sexual assault in the past where the person reporting it was doubted, spoken over, and intimidated into silence. A woman sets up another woman to have an experience where she wonders if she had been assaulted or not. Someone recorded a video of a sexual assault and it was sent around. People regularly refuse to take responsibility for their part in a sexual assault.

The movie centers around a rape but it is never actually shown onscreen. At one point, we see the protagonist watch a video of the rape and become distressed, but we never see the video ourselves

From above “ A woman tells someone that another woman carries around scissors for the purpose of cutting off men's penises. Later, a woman opens a kit with scalpels, suggesting that she intends to castrate a man, but it doesn't go further than that.”

The movie has a lot of hate speech directed at women. A group of men discuss at a bar the fact that a woman can't come with them to a golf or strip club, but place the responsibility on her. Male construction workers shout insults at a woman who doesn't respond to their catcalling. Many people blame another woman for her own assault because she was drinking and say that she invited it.

Sorta? The parents of the protagonist seem to be relieved she finally has a romantic partner. Another woman tells the protagonist she'll have her own children. Subtle implications about the expectations for the protagonist. She may not be on the ace spectrum, but is still subjected to a heteronormative society.

The film features many scenes of the lead-up to sex, and there is a lot of discussion of sex, but no sex is depicted on screen. A woman discusses a man "putting his fingers inside" her. A mention of anal sex. Crude descriptions of women and their bodies. Implications or discussions of sexual assaults

I don't believe anyone got justice, the guy was only arrested for killing her and nobody was punished for any instance of rape. The ending is sad and the movie acts like it's happy with happy music, that and the long rape-like murder scene is incredibly triggering.
