Man accidentally causes the death of his ex-friends beloved donkey while trying to be cruel in a different way. The death is not shown but the body and gross method of death is lingered upon

Perhaps the most depressing death of a pet I've ever seen in a fictional work. Though a beautiful film, it might be too upsetting if that's a subject you're sensitive to.

i would say yes. colm’s treatment of pádraic at times resembles gaslighting, albeit unintentionally.

While there is some initial comic element to Padraic’s complete inability to honor Colm’s demands to never speak to him again, Padraic, yes, does obsessively stalk Colm, no mistake. Tho with no *direct* intent to harm Colm, Colm has warned/threatened Padraic more than once with his own significant self-harm if Padraic doesn’t comply however, so Padraic’s relentless pursuit of Colm’s attention is nonetheless brutally harmful as Colm makes good on those threats - twice.

While not depicted, the policeman's teen son is beaten with a kettle. His cuts and bruises are visible.

Socialisation on the island revolves around heavy drinking

There's heavy use of alcohol, but it's not framed as debilitating.

Outside of the socially acceptable heavy use of alcohol and tobacco there is no other depiction of drug abuse

Colm amputates all of his fingers on one hand. We don’t see him do it, but we see the bleeding stumps as well as the severed fingers

A man cutting off his fingers is used as a major plot device.

No active torture, but main character is put in an impossible situation that makes them feel tortured. I was very much triggered.

Colm’s self mutilation, the severing of his own fingers, and his delivery of them to Padraic, over the course of two scenes is graphic and bloody

Padraic shaves at one point and of course there is the cutting of fingers

A character's cause of death is speculated as falling into a lake, but it's not shown and it isn't from a height.

Unclear if Dominic is a minor or not - the actor is about 30 but he could pass for much younger. We learn he was sexually abused as a child but there aren't flashbacks or anything.

While technically not a kid, Dominic is quite childlike, and takes his own life, it is strongly suggested, by drowning

No, but there's many comments and other rude words about people's intelligence that might be upsetting.

There are no toys belonging to a child destroyed, but the puppets and masks that Colm has in his home do get destroyed.

No horror-style jumpscares, but as said there are a few impacts that made me jump. There's one when Pádraic leaves the general store after speaking to the policeman, and another near the end when he looks at himself in the mirror.

Pádraic is shown shaving at least once. Couldn’t finish b/c I didn’t want to see other triggers mentioned by others in the app.

We see a dead donkey with vomit around its mouth. It’s not particularly upsetting (I’m pretty sure it’s physically impossible for donkeys to vomit anyway)

Only towards himself. Colm isn’t explicitly said to be mentally I’ll but there’s definitely something wrong with him, and he cuts off his own fingers out of spite

Dominic can very easily be read as neurodivergent. He's treated like the village idiot and abused by his father.

Debatable, leaning towards yes. Dominic can very easily be read as neurodivergent, and he's treated like the village idiot.

there are a couple of comments about “impure thoughts about another man” when colm and the priest are in confession, but that’s the only time anything related to non-heterosexuality is ever mentioned

Some brief homophobia. The priest accuses Colm of having “impure thoughts about men” and Colm is outraged. He accuses the priest of the same and the priest says something along the lines of “how dare you suggest such a thing about a man of the cloth”

related: there is body shaming of a man's genitalia and implicit mockery of his fat body

A young man hits on an older woman (the actors are 30 and 39 respectively, but the man's character is implied to be younger), but she rejects him. There's also mentions of pedophilia in the past.

Male full frontal, mention of him masturbating and possibly being sexually abusive. No sex shown

Dominic speaks about women in objectifying terms, speaks to them with inappropriate candor, and has extreme difficulty responding to cues or even direct requests to desist

In many ways Dominic is rather homeless - he has no where else to go but his abusive father’s house

Extremely sad, way worse than I expected from the trailer. Don't be fooled by the tone of the first half.

Fingers are chopped off, you don't see the actual amputation but you see the fingers and remaining hand after

*SPOILER* While the actual drowning isn't depicted on screen, a character drowns and we do see their body being pulled from the water.
