“Blue Valentine” is a film that first premiered at the Sundance Film Festival last year. It is scheduled for limited release on December 31st.
Academy Award Nominees Ryan Gosling and Michelle Williams star in the movie that was previously given an NC-17 rating due to a “scene of explicit sexual content.”
However, Harvey Weinstein, of The Weinstein Company, made an appeal to the Motion Picture Association of America to change the rating of the film. It is now rated R instead. That is due to “strong graphic sexual content, language, and a beating.”
Yikes. Something you would want to watch? The film is about a marriage that falls apart after a few years of being together. What? You mean marriage isn’t easily and happily-ever-after all the time? Hmmm, maybe it is one to watch after all!
After the jump, you can view the trailer for the controversial movie. Don’t worry, the trailer isn’t explicit.
Will you watch Blue Valentine? Does knowing it was almost NC-17 change what you think of the film?
