Women are brutalized, it isn't shown on screen however, neither does it feel being done out of spectacle. The focus is on the "aftermath" and the women's response to what was done to them.

it is implied older men (15+) will be left behind, and although it is sad it is seen as necessary. all younger children are safe.

Women Talking (2022) is unsafe. Audio and visual. The visual doesn’t actually show v* About halfway through the film, a pregnant woman is walking quickly and bends down to v*. Her back is turned from the camera and so the v* isn’t shown but you can quickly hear it.

Earlier in the film an older woman is shown spitting out blood. Could be triggering to some.

One colony member, who had always felt like they were a man, visibly transitions to being male and explains that after the dysphoria of being impregnated and then miscarrying made impossible for him to continue pretending to be a woman.

depends on your view, but one character is a trans man. we don't see much of him, but he does not speak due to being raped before he transitioned.
