Why Is Come Away Home Rated PG?

While most of the film focuses on building family relationships and respect for the elderly, disobedience, lying, keeping secrets and a disregard for some traffic laws are also depicted in the movie. Some young viewers may be a little frightened by the telling of a ghost story, the portrayal of a character lost in the dark and a near-drowning incident. A teen character is shown smoking. One mild profanity and a brief sexual innuendo are included.
