NC-17 Rating on ‘Blue Valentine’ Lifted

If you were worried about where you could see the NC-17-rated and much-buzzed-about Ryan Gosling and Michelle Williams film Blue Valentine, you’re in luck — because the controversial rating has been overturned.

The film was given the NC-17 rating for a particularly steamy love scene between the lead actors, but in an appeal made by film exec Harvey Weinstein, the provacative movie will now carry an R rating, making it much more audience (and Oscar) friendly.

Check out the trailer for the film, which shows “a contemporary married couple, charting their evolution over a span of years by cross-cutting between time periods.”

Blue Valentine hits theaters on December 31. Will you see the controversial movie? Let us know in the comments!
