Why Is The Jane Austen Book Club Rated PG-13?

The adult women in this film don’t show any discomfort discussing sexual topics, physical anatomy and other mature themes. Passionate kissing involving teens and adults is shown. Alcohol is used in social settings as well as a stress reliever. One character also uses illegal drugs. A brief sexual expletive and moderate profanities are included.
