It's hard to say, much like many Almodóvar films the consent is muddy. The only sex occurs after Ricky comes home and Marina sort of makes her turn where she begins to have feelings for him and she initiates sex with him and it leads to an extended scene of what I took to be consensual sex. Now, he is absolutely holding her hostage and so there's absolutely an argument to be made that her consent isn't really consent in this type of scenario. This is par for the course with Almodóvar's films IMO, and if a film about muddy consent, abusive relationships, and an interrogation of those ideas through Stockholm Syndrome might be triggering - I would avoid this movie.
