    Scenes of domestic abuse include those in which a violent husband verbally and physically abuses his wife and young stepson. These scenes include a heavy slap to the boy and his wife, with the latter blow splitting the woman’s lip, and a scene in which the man intentionally invades his wife’s personal space and forces a kiss on her. The woman subsequently exacts violent retribution against her abusive husband, who she drugs before burning his genitals below frame with a blowtorch.


    There is strong language (‘f**k’), as well as milder terms (for example, ‘asshole’, ‘shit’, ‘bastard’, ‘balls’, ‘jerk’, ‘God’, ‘damn’).

    sexual violence and sexual threat

    Following a scene of domestic violence, a woman is raped by her husband. There are also verbal death references, as well as scenes in which people grieve.
