Not Rated, but would probably be:

PG-13-Thematic Elements involving Rape, and Some Violent Content

A rape and the resultant pregnancy is central to the plot.

The rape scene takes place on-screen, but the characters are only seen from the shoulders up during it. The only nudity are incidental views of parts of a baby.

*While the rapist is seen kissing the victim and shoving her around, the actual rape is not shown.

The rape scene involves force; a murder and a shooting occur. None of these scenes are filmed in such a way as to emphasize goriness.

No profanity is used.

Alcohol is consumed by several characters, one of whom becomes drunk. There are a few scenes with incidental tobacco smoking. The only drugs in the film are prescribed medications.

No scene is "intense," but younger viewers will probably find all three violent scenes (one rape, one murder and one shooting) disturbing, rather than frightening. Some modern younger viewers might easily be disturbed by the coarse, casual disparagement of the deaf-mute character as "the Dummy."

Not a good choice for young children.
