Meryl Streep and Johnny Depp have joined forces with AMC Entertainment CEO Gerry Lopez to fight against the 'R' rating that was given to the powerful documentary Bully.
Lopez criticized the decision, noting that violence and sex are more subjective, adding:
"To automatically default Bully is a mistake. Automatic default to a rating … is a mistake. The message, the movie and its social relevance defy that kind of formulaic, conventional thinking. AMC will show this movie, and we invite our guests to engage in the dialogue its relevant message will inevitably provoke."
Yes, yes, yes! There needs to be even more support for this movie so there can be a wider audience!!!! Come on, MPAA!!
