Coming Soon: Streep On Film
In 2017, Meryl Streep's film career will celebrate its 40th anniversary. Prepare for many new specials and media.
|Movie censors in America have given movie mogul Harvey Weinstein’s controversial new film Bully a PG-13 rating after he agreed to re-edit it for younger audiences. Bosses at The Motion Picture Association of America initially slapped the documentary with a restrictive R rating, which bans young children from seeing the film without an adult. The Weinstein Company boss argued that Bully was essential viewing for kids as it raised awareness and should be shown in schools.|
A host of stars, including Justin Bieber and Meryl Streep, added their names to a petition aimed at making the censors change their minds and Weinstein subsequently announced he would release the movie, unrated, in a limited number of theatres. But he has now decided to re-edit a crucial scene, which featured expletives, to land Bully a PG-13 rating, enabling younger teenagers to see the movie. A statement from the National Association of Theatre Owners reads, “We are pleased the Weinstein Co. respected the rules and processes of the voluntary ratings system by editing and resubmitting Bully in order to receive the PG-13 rating.” The above video is a report from ABC World News on the New York screening that was hosted by Meryl. Many thanks to Rachel for guiding it my way.
