The main body of the movie follows a touring rock band in the 1970's, so the use of drugs and alcohol both feature, however there are no specific indicators or references to addiction.

A group of women pull off a 15-year-old's clothes without asking him, with the intention of taking his virginity; this happens after William is shown writing in a bathtub fully clothed. When Penny is partially unconscious from overdosing, William kisses her; this happens after William leaves a bar to check on Penny after she sees Russell with his wife.

There is heavy implication that the main character is raped by a group of women, but it’s not explicitly shown. Still triggering though.

No one falls to their death, but at a party Russell gets high on acid and gets onto a roof; the protagonist fears for Russell's life, and Russell plans and says his last words before jumping into a pool and surviving the fall.

The following morning, Penny is topless, and there is a brief shot of her exposed chest. Sex is implied and discussed throughout the movie.

I wouldn't call it a sad ending; several characters are happily reunited, and the protagonist succeeds at what he set out to do. The protagonist does not, however, get together with the woman he was in love in, which might be why some people have marked this as having a sad ending.
