I May Destroy You

TV Show • 2020  

Report
Following triumph from a piece of writing that garnered internet acclaim, Arabella Essiuedu – easily distracted, non-committal and carefree – finds herself feted as the ‘voice of her generation,’ with an agent, a book commission and a helluva lot of pressure. After being sexually assaulted in a nightclub, her life changes irreversibly and Arabella is forced to reassess everything: her career, her friends, even her family. As Arabella struggles to come to terms with what has happened, she begins a journey of self-discovery.

Rape, sexual assault, and consent are themes present throughout, though the sexual violence is between strangers or hookup partners so none of it is really domestic violence per se

A character says that she lied that her dad sexually abused her at age 7 at her mother's request. So technically no, but it's a very present topic in the show.

You see v*m*t on the floor next to Arabella in episode 3 (around 16 mins in, when she sits on the railings on her journey home); the act itself isn't shown but the v*m is shown really clearly on screen

In episode 2, during Arabella's police interview, she breaks down and cries; it closely resembles an anxiety attack but isn't actually one.

Some scenes are filmed fisheye style, as if through the eyes of a character. The view jolts around quite aggressively so might be considered as shakey cam? (Happens during flashbacks or drug-taking scenes across multiple episodes)

However, in S1E6, a character discusses how, when she was 7 years old, she lied about her dad molesting her so that her mother would get custody in the divorce.
