Evan Rachel Wood accuses MPAA of ‘shaming women for enjoying sex’ as censors cut steamy scene from film
Actress Evan Rachel Wood has come out swinging against the Motion Picture Association of America, after the organization censored a scene from her upcoming film Charlie Countryman that apparently depicted a woman receiving oral sex.
“I would like to share my disappointment with the MPAA, who thought it was necessary to censor a woman’s sexuality once again,” the actress began. “The scene where the two main characters make ‘love’ was altered because someone felt that seeing a man give a woman oral sex made people ‘uncomfortable’ but the scenes in which people are murdered by having their heads blown off remained intact and unaltered:” natpo.st/ItG5Fz
The Hunger Games: Catching Fire, reviewed: Jennifer Lawrence struts her stuff in unfaltering sequel that sets the stage for a fantastic finale
REVIEW: Lawrence, who was such a revelation in the first Hunger Games, continues to strut her stuff in this one. It takes a superior actor to play a character who is herself putting on an act for much of the picture, and to separate those strata of performance cleanly – in a neoprene suit, no less. Hutcherson is often in her shadow, but since that’s also true of Peeta it works well.
The film – again, like the book – ends on a cliffhanging note, which will annoy viewers who don’t want to wait a full two years for resolution. (The final installment, Mockingjay, has been split into two parts, opening in Novembers of 2014 and 2015.) But such is the curse of the middle chapter. Hunger Games got off to a smashing start and hasn’t faltered yet. If it keeps up the pace, the finale will be worth the wait: natpo.st/17N3MDM
