Why Is The Other Boleyn Girl Rated PG-13?

The lack of a male heir is just one factor that has Henry VIII ready to bed a series of women. Sexual activity includes passionate kissing, adulterous couplings, some bare skin, a rape and insinuation of incest, along with frank sexual dialogue. Executions, bloody animal carcasses and a court trial are depicted as well as scenes of childbirth. A repeated term for illegitimate children is used in the script along with brief coarse language and several terms of Deity. A man drinks to deal with emotional trauma.
