Why Is The Prestige Rated PG-13?


This story of pursuing your passion at all costs is marred by disturbing images of people being drowned, shot, hung and disfigured as well as birds being crushed. The tension of deception both on the stage and at home causes some characters to turn to alcohol. The film also contains perceived moments of infidelity and brief discussions of sexual encounters.
