There are multiple non-consentual restraint scenes including flashes of SA occurring showing a leg being restrained. The film is focused on slavery and attempted enslavement so there are a lot of people chained, locked up, tied etc.

There are two visual flashes of SA. Suggestive flashes rather than a graphic & focused scene. As someone who -cannot- handle SA scenes without feeling sick, it was very manageable but a survivor of SA (or someone who respons worse than having a sinking feeling) may want to skip as these 2 flashes coupled with references throughout the movie may be too much.

Description of what is shown TW:

You see a leg tied and someone laying between them, crying, zoomed in faces, and someone above the person being attacked. There is a male standing behind the other man which implies that he is waiting to be the next assaulter. The implication later confirmed by the survivor. There is no movement of either assaulter or survivor's bodies to implicate what is happening.

Not excessive but it’s there in most gore scenes. The most triggering is probably when a characters puts another characters bone back into place. Try to cover your ears after the character asks the other one to do it for them if it triggers you

Technically yes, but not in the usual context of this trope. Most of the cast is poc and the first death is a man of a rival tribe, most if not all of which is poc. So factually yes, but the usual implications present with it are not
