Stephen Frears' Philomena Gets R-Rating

Harvey Weinstein Appeals MPAA Decision

The British drama Philomena was directed by Stephen Frears and stars Dame Judi Dench and Steve Coogan in the main roles. In the US, the MPAA gave it an "R" rating for "some language". According to BBC, 2 curse words were the reason that the film failed to get the "PG-13" classification. In the UK, the film is rated "12" by the way.

Philomena deals with a mother who gets help from a journalist while searching for her son who was taken away from her several decades ago while she was forced to go to a monastery.

The Weinstein Company is currently appealing the "R" rating and hopes to get the PG-13 without having to censor the film. The last time they tried something similar was the 2012 documentary Bully. Even though quite some controversy was created by Weinstein, it failed to change the MPAA's mind, which led to the sad fact that Bully is only available in a censored version.

Philomena will start in US cinemas in November 2013.
