It’s not quite abuse but a homeless cat is found almost dead in the snow. It’s a very disturbing scene (but the cat is eventually fine).

Protagonist's wife died of cancer 6 months prior to the film's setting, leading to protagonist's suicidal ideation. It is the defining theme of the film.

the movie starts with a suicide attempt, and depicts multiple further attempts actively on screen.

No, although the protagonist’s life story is told in frequent flashbacks he experiences at emotional moments, including flashbacks to traumatic incidents. The flashbacks are the narrative kind rather than the PTSD kind; Otto they seem more like memories than literal flashbacks

There is no successful suicide but 5 distinct attempts by the protagonist throughout the film, as well as several dialogue scenes discussing his intentions.

Not abuse but dislike for Otto who clearly displays stereotypical traits of Autism. He is chastised for being "rude"/too straightforward.

There is also a scene where the protagonist shuts his garage door while a woman is inside, and she pounds on the door. We see her phone light in darkness as the door shuts. But a few seconds later Otto tells her the door is not locked and we see her open the door and get out. It’s played for laughs and very brief

A woman loses her baby after experiencing a bus accident. We see her crying in the hospital with her husband after learning the news. The unused baby supplies and the couple’s lack of children come up frequently throughout the movie

One character is pregnant for most of the movie and we see the baby near the end. There is also talk of the protagonist’s wife’s pregnancy in flashbacks. SPOILERS: the protagonist’s wife suffers a miscarriage due to a bus accident

Otto is chastised for having autistic traits by other characters. (Very straightforward in his conversation - called rude for doing so) Also for sticking to rules in a black and white fashion (at work, at home in his neighbourhood - everything.)

No - the opposite. There is positive representation of a trans character, supported by the protagonist. There is reference to that character not being accepted by their family.

Trans character is kicked out of the home but no slurs that I recall. We never see the characters who were transphobic, it’s only spoken of

We see a character preparing to attempt suicide with a gun, but he moves it away from himself at the last moment. He does fire a shot into the ceiling, which is heard. He then answers the door with the gun in his hand, which frightens the teen standing outside. He tells the teen “I’m not gonna shoot you” and says the gunshot noise was the generator. Nobody actually gets shot or shot at.
