Why Is The House Of Mirth Rated PG?

Overall: B
A young socialite who must marry for money, makes a series of social blunders that cause her disgrace. Beautifully shot, and exquisitely costumed, this tale of 1905 New York high society is heavy on dialog and light on action, as is typical of this genre.

Violence: B-
Depiction of suicide, and blackmail.

Sexual Content: B
Several extramarital affairs and proposals for such relationships are mentioned or discussed. All such behaviour is seen as a social stigma. Two passionate kisses depicted. Man verbally attempts to extort sexual favours from a woman whom he forcibly kisses.

Language: A-
At least: 2 mild profanities, and 2 terms of Deity used as expletives.

Alcohol / Drug Use: B
Social drinking, and abuse of prescription medicine.
