We Are Monster - Censored in British Cinemas
The British drama We Are Monster tells the story of a violent racist inmate who gets put in the cell with a young Asian man called Zahid Mubarek who awaits his release in just 6 weeks for a minor deed. However, he won't live that long has he is killed by his violent cell partner. Hard drama stuff, no doubt, but the British BBFC did especially look at the used language when deciding what rating is most appropriate. This time, the language would have been the cause for the "18" rating, which was not what the distributor wanted. Therefore, the BBFC advised them how to achieve that goal:
It's not the first time that language makes the difference between two ratings in the UK. And even though the BBFC is not as strict as the American MPAA, it still begs the question how close to reality some of these decisions are, given the kind of language that teenagers are dealing with on an everyday basis.
