Surprising news has come out of the UK via The Telegraph today, and it has to do with an upcoming adaptation.
She said, “It will be NC-17. It’s going to be raunchy. We are 100 per cent going there. The fans love this book, and I want them to love the film as much. I want to make them laugh and cry, to turn them on. I want this to do everything.”
If Focus Features really backs this play to make this movie NC-17, considering its huge devoted following, this could change how people view NC-17 rated films depending on how successful it is.
For some reason sex has always been so taboo in our country when we have people being dismembered on screen for an R-rating.
Look at Ang Lee’s “Lust, Caution” or “Blue Valentine” or even “Shame” as examples of phenomenal films that didn’t get a moment to shine because we frown on sex, but we give Oscars to violent films like “Gladiator.”
