Alexander Payne's Nebraska Stays R-Rated

Appeal Didn't Change the MPAA's Decision

The drama Nebraska by director Alexander Payne (The Descendants, Sideways) will have it hard to find an audience as it is. In true artsy fashion, the little film was filmed in black and white and hasn't such a popular cast as Payne's previous works did. Instead, it has veteran actor Bruce Dern and Will Forte, who seems rather exotic in this genre. At least the rating was not considered to be a problem for the small success. A PG-13 was the goal.

However, the MPAA didn't grant that and instead gave the "R" classification. And this is not due to violence, sex or nudity, no, "some language" is the kicker here. A few bad words in a road movie that deals with a difficult relationship between a father and a son. An appeal was made but the MPAA stuck by its decision, which made some critics angry and comments that wonder about several MPAA decisions in the past decades arose.

Well, now it has to live with its situation and will start in US cinemas in November 2013.
