Once she got beyond her initial response, though, Lawrence reevaluated and realized that they had accomplished what they set out to do.
"We have a message and if we watered it down to make people comfortable then what's the point?" she said. "Why even make it?"
Based on what Lawrence said, audiences should expect the movie to make them uncomfortable. It is going to be intense, so prepare yourself accordingly.
