    THE WEINSTEIN COMPANY TO CHALLENGE MPAA'S RATING

    The Weinstein Company (TWC), the studio behind many hits and misses over the past has decided to accept but at the mean time, to appeal on the decision of MPAA (Motion Picture Association of america or American version of our own FINAS) to label the studio's two upcoming movies that has generated some Oscar buzz recently.


    Blue Valentine which came out of the Sundance Competition this year has generated some portion of buzz. The script of the movie, written by director Derek Cianfrance, Cami Delavigne and Joey Curtis has won the Chrysler Film Project, a competition that awards cash to an outstanding new feature film director, selected from over 550 submissions from across the country, overseen by Independent Feature Project.



    The film was shot on shaky cam and is on the boiling soup of MPAA's following the decision to slap the movie with NC-17 reportedly due to an emotionally intense sex scene and depicts oral sex. The movie stars Acamedy Awards nominees Ryan Gosling and Michelle Williams, centers on a married couple, Dean and Cindy, and their relationship over a number of years by shifting between different time periods. Problems with the marriage center around Cindy's ambition, juxtaposed to Dean's contentment to center his life around his wife and child.


    Meanwhile, TWC is also preparing a legal challenge for an R-rating The King's Speech. The Oscar-buzzy film that received an R-rating, presumable for adult language, is directed by Tom Hooper and has won the 2010 Toronto International Film Festival People's Choice Award. The film stars Colin Firth as King George VI and Geoffrey Rush as speech therapist Lionel Logue, who helped George VI overcome a stammer.



    Blue Valentine opens on 31 December in the United States (most probably banned in Malaysia) while The King's Speech will open November 24 in the USA.
