Why Is Coco avant Chanel (Coco Before Chanel) Rated PG-13?

Frequent smoking and alcohol use are portrayed along with rowdy behavior in a bar and at a party. Sexual actions include adulterous behavior along with comments involving homosexual preferences, prostitutes and other crude innuendo. A man and woman kiss passionately, undress (with only back nudity seen) and roll on the floor before the camera fades to black. At least two other scenes portray couples kissing and undressing without explicit sexual activity. A drunken man attempts to have sex with a woman who refuses his advances. Women wear revealing or scanty clothing. A man’s death is discussed and a wrecked car is seen wrapped around a tree. The script contains infrequent moderate profanities and a strong sexual slang term used in a sexual context.
