The Angel's Share - Two versions in the UK
Ken Loach, the director of the British comedy The Angel's Share, is not amused about the BBFC's behaviour regarding their evaluation of obscene language. In order to give the more lucrative BBFC 15 rating, the board demanded a reduction of bad language.
Loach told The Guardian:
Scriptwriter Paul Laverty said a bit more and added critique that other aspects such as graphic violence aren't rated as strict as language:
The BBFC did not hesitate to comment on those statements and gave an answer (that doesn't deal with the point the filmmakers make):
This very choice was made by distributor Entertainment One. They decided to cut the film for a BBFC 15 rating in theaters. On DVD and Blu-ray, the situation is the same as it turned out recently with The Hunger Games. The DVD only has the censored theatrical version on board while the Blu-ray contains the uncut BBFC 18 variant of the movie. You can order it here.
