Not exactly, but the child does witness her parents arguing which is clearly traumatic to her.

A rabbit is found dead in a boiling pot. It’s obviously fake and is juxtaposed with a child screaming about the rabbit being missing.

Spoiler: the woman who has borderline and is obsessed with the main protagonist, kills the and cooks (as in, boil) the daughter's rabbit. The daughter's mother (not the obsessive woman) finds the rabbit dead and bloody in a saucepan.

Just like most of us with BPD, we hurt ourselves (oftentimes cutting) to prevent/manipulate someone into staying when we become completely desperate when we think they're leaving us. We feel as though our whole life is falling apart. So, threats of suicide or acts of/treats of self harm, is very common. Alex is a textbook case of someone suffering with BPD, so she does everything that's predictable.

Dan’s wife breaks her arm in a car crash. You see the arm in a sling later, but you don’t see when the injury occurs aside from the car accident itself.

It’s not traumatic, but Alex does kidnap Ellen and takes her on a roller coaster. She is not harmed and is returned home afterwards.

Alex self harms in the first half of the movie, and the bleeding cuts are shown for an extended period of time while Dan attempts to staunch the bleeding. I had to turn the movie off before the scene even ended.

Alex has BPD, and this movie perpetuates some pretty harmful stigma.

No. But Alex cuts herself, faking a suicide attempt. She did so to guilt trip the main protagonist into staying in her life. She didn't actually try to kill herself. She just made him think she did.
