Spoonful of Sugar

Movie  

Report
Millicent is taking a semester off from her studies to concentrate on her thesis about children with severe allergies, which makes her the perfect person to take care of little Johnny, a sickly, mute child who suffers from every allergy under the sun, from nickel to artificial fabric. His overbearing mother, Rebecca, is an accomplished author who is focused on her latest book release, while his dissatisfied father, Jacob, spends sweaty, shirtless days toiling away on a carpentry project in the backyard.
This movie contains 23 potentially triggering events.

I’d say skip 26:55-29:15. The rabbits are already dead but the imagery and what the characters do is pretty graphic.

A dead rabbit is found buried and is handled. The main character cuts the rabbit's foot off and pulls the skin off to "make it into a keychain". Blood is shown and bones crunching. A second dead rabbit is revealed and she is is shown teaching the child how to dismember the rabbit. 27:00-29:10 to skip initial dead rabbit visuals. Dead rabbits are shown again starting 1:13 until the next scene. (Shudder timestamps)

The child is described as having allergies but also as having been previously diagnosed with autism. There's a lot of the usual tropes though nothing outright ableist is said.
