This one is iffy, as the previous abuse is denied by the victim. However it’s not 100% clear if she’s lying or not.

SPOILERS: A man (who was a minor at their first meeting) was sexually abused by his now wife (who was 36). She tells him that he was the one who seduced her, he tries to assert that he was only 13, but she insists he was in charge the whole time.

No explicit animal abuse, but there is a scene inside a pet shop where you can see all the small cages packed with animals and a lot of discomfort noises from them.

They’re mentioned a few times, but you don’t see one til the final scene. However you are warned in advance, so you have plenty of time to look away. The snake is on screen the whole final scene til the end of the film.

The film centers around a statutory rape that happened 20 years ago. It is at first presented as consensual, but the film clearly condemns this and the traumatic aftermath is clear in the victim. SPOILERS: the victim later realizes they were unable to consent at the time

Entire film is about a woman who had an affair with a 13 year old boy. Also a moment where an actress is looking at the audition tapes of teenage boys who would be featured in a film about the affair, and she asks why they can’t find a “sexy” kid.
