Why Is The Roommate Rated PG-13?

Violence: A female student is attacked in a shower by another student who forcibly removes her navel ring. A woman bruises herself and cuts her abdomen. A woman is seen tied to a bed and it is implied she has been forcibly confined for some time. During a physical altercation a gun is fired multiple times and a knife is used resulting in characters being stabbed -- one fatally. A kitten is placed in a clothes dryer and we later learn it was killed. A woman pierces her ears with earrings -- a drop of blood is seen.

Sexual Content: A male teacher kisses a female student after offering her a trip to Paris. He later accepts the sexual advances of another female student. A man and woman engage in sexual activity, no explicit nudity or sounds are included. A woman talks to a man on the phone, and it is implied she pleasures herself while doing so. Two women kiss in a public restroom and one invites the other back to her place. An intoxicated woman pulls her shirt up and exposes her breasts at a frat house party (no explicit nudity is seen).

Language: Profanities throughout include scatological expletives, terms of deity and other mild terms.

Drugs/Alcohol: Campus parties and clubs are depicted with heavy alcohol consumption resulting in drunken behavior. A woman takes pills offered to her without asking or confirming what they are.
