Ropes of Silicone revealed that Life has received an R Rating from the MPAA. Not going to lie, I didn't see that one coming. I can't see any reason why it should have an R Rating.

"Anton Corbijn's Life is still looking for a distributor after its Berlin Film Festival premiere, but it has an MPAA rating. The film, starring Robert Pattinson and Dane DeHaan, will arrive with an R-rating when it does finally arrive."Thanks Nancy
