“Joyeux Noel” Wins Appeal of ‘R’ Rating

"Joyeux Noel" Wins Appeal of 'R' Rating

The MPAA has overturned their rating of French foreign language Oscar nominee “Joyeux Noel,” giving the movie a ‘PG-13’ instead of an ‘R’. The film’s distributor, Sony Pictures Classics, and director Christian Carion, had appealed the rating. In a statement today, Carion said, “It is important this film is PG-13 because it is a movie young people should see. It has a message of peace, not violence which is very important now a days, especially for our youth.” The film had been given an ‘R’ for “some war violence and brief nudity.” [Eugene Hernandez]
