Why Is Grace Is Gone Rated PG-13?

A group of military wives briefly discuss the activities (without excessive details) they engaged in with their husbands preceding the men’s deployment. A handful of profanities along with two sexual expletives and some discussion of war are included in the dialogue. Two adult characters and two teens smoke or try cigarettes. In one case, a father buys cigarettes for his preteen daughter to smoke with him in a teaching situation. Some sibling bickering, a brief tussle and the non-use of seatbelts are also shown.
