sexual violence and sexual threat

There are references to child sex abuse when a woman says that her brother in law 'looks' at her child in a certain way. She then finds him shirtless in a room with the child, but there's no visual detail. In a scene of sexual harassment a woman's male boss touches her waist before she slaps him. 


A woman pushes her child to the floor and later makes a verbal reference to regretting 'beating' her. There are discriminatory attitudes but the film as a whole aims to raise awareness about autism. There's also an undetailed reference to a man being suicidal. The film features mild bad language ('shit') and very mild bad language ('God'). There is mild threat when a child with autism becomes frightened of her surroundings.
