Why Is Fly Away Home Rated PG?

The movie opens with the depiction of the car accident that claims Amy’s mother. Although not graphic, the scene is every intense. Flying of ultra-light aircraft sometimes results in crashes (no lives are lost). A man is shown in his underwear. A child is embarrassed when she is accidentally seen with no clothes on (no nudity is shown). A live-in relationship between a man and woman is implied. A child gets a nose ring. Disagreement with the advice of a game warden leads to characters choosing to break the law.
