Weinstein is challenging the rating and it's very possible the film will ultimately earn an "R". I'm just confused as to how this rating came about when there's not even nudity in the film...? Plenty of other films depict rape, incest and graphic murder, but still receive only an R rating. Two that come to mind off the bat, Precious and Hostel.

All that aside, the film looks great. Really dig that song Ryan Gosling sings in the trailer.

It seems the Weinstein Company is bringing out some big guns to appeal the NC-17 rating. The whole controversy is over an oral sex scene between Gosling and Williams - but with Williams on the receiving end. Granted, I don't know how graphic it is, but I find it hard to believe it warrants an NC-17 and is, as Gosling has gone on record, a bit misogynistic. I'll have to side with the Weinsteins on this one. 11/19/2010

Very odd. This will kill the movie for distribution (not that it would be wide anyway). I would hope (and assume) that they will delete a certain amount of time off that scene to comply with an R rating. Ridiculous. 11/20/2010

It has been bumped down to an R - and even got some Golden Globe nominations to celebrate. I, for one, am glad they reversed the initial rating. 12/21/2010
