Black and White Receives Desired PG-13 Rating

Kevin Costner-Led Movie Wins Appeal at MPAA

Not so long ago, we reported that Mike Binder's drama Black and White received an "R" rating by the MPAA for "brief strong language" and the studio decided to appeal that (see here). The story revolves around Kevin Costners character trying to win custody for his half-white, half-black daughter.

In the meantime, the appeal took place at the MPAA and turned out to be a success for the studio. The rating was lowered. However, the text describing the "PG-13" received some additions that are supposed to help parents to keep themselves and their children as far away from the movie as possible. The warning now reads: "brief strong language, thematic material involving drug use and drinking, and for a fight".

While the regular rating decision is made by the Classification & Ratings Administration (CARA, a sub-organization of the MPAA) whose members are primarily parents, the appeals process is handled by representatives of the film industry. In general, such appeals are rather rare and not successful (at least not until cuts are made). Still, the last months showed a slight increase of such fortunate cases.

Black and White doesn't have a theatrical release date as of now.
