Depictions of physical violence are not shown in the film but there are allusions to it as well as a verbal threat of violence against a character in the film. There are a lines referring to sexual harassment and viewers will witness the retelling of a suicide attempt.

The movie is geared towards young adults and adults who are seeking a dramatized version of the ongoing allegations against Weinstein. It has brought up conversations surrounding covert and overt harassment on and off Hollywood production sets.
