MPAA upholds NC-17 rating for 'Where Truth Lies' film


UPI News Service, 09/08/2005 

The Motion Picture Association of America has refused to lower the restrictive NC-17 rating placed on the Kevin Bacon, Colin Firth film "Where Truth Lies."

The MPAA Appeals Board left the rating intact after hearing testimony to the contrary Wednesday from director Atom Egoyan and star Rachel Blanchard, the Hollywood Reporter said Wednesday.

The panel said the movie being released by ThinkFilm was still too sexually explicit even after Egoyan made cuts aimed at garnering an R rating.

ThinkFilm said the MPAA objected to a sexual threesome between Blanchard, Firth and Bacon, which leads to the death of a woman -- a key element in the film that could not be cut.
