The main character is attacked by her husband very early in the film, and a couple of characters say that he mistreated her in the past later on in the film. The past violence is not shown.

Excessive as in you see broken bones protrude from broken limbs, cuts, severe facial and head trauma. Yes I would say it’s pretty gory and bloody when compared to movies not known for being gory. It’s not per say a “gore fest”, but if you’re sensitive to it I’d say to skip the movie
