The main characters are presumed Muslim, mentions Eid and some people wear hijabs but not a main plot line and is probably something that could be missed in the film.

(spoilers) There's a brief moment in the cycle of abuse where the protagonist believes the villain and goes to apologize. She figures out the truth eventually though.

(Major spoilers) Lena's fiance and MIL experiment on her reproductive organs without her consent. This experimentation is what killed his first wife. Later on in the movie, Lena's fiance uses a chokehold to prevent her from escaping once she finds out the truth

Very severe gaslighting involving family, relationship, intentional, unintentional, love bombing, lying when confronted with evidence, forced apologies, and the viewer is left in the dark and trying to figure out who to believe. (SPOILERRRRS) the protagonist is right all along and the sister is in danger.

Yes, a teenager is choked on several occasions, and all of which by people older and bigger than her. The final fight has the antagonist choking her and leaving her for dead, even though she manages to stand back up quickly after.

Two different ways. On one hand there's magical realism where the universe behaves in a melodramatic coming of age metaphor sort of way...And at the same time the protagonist gets gaslighted (see that entry for more info) to ignore shady behavior so altogether it kind of messes with your head because the shady behavior starts to look like just another fanciful magical realism metaphor.
