Julia Roberts’ EAT PRAY LOVE Gets A Nicer Rating
Julia Roberts’ upcoming film “Eat Pray Love“, an adaptation of Elizabeth Gilbert’s novel of the same name, won an appeal of its initial R rating, earning a PG-13 rating instead .
Director Ryan Murphy and producer Dede Gardner appealed to the Classification and Rating Appeals Board for the Motion Picture Association of America, seeking a PG-13 rating. The outcome of the appeal was announced Wednesday, with the film winning the lower rating. It is now PG-13 for containing “brief strong language, some sexual references and male rear nudity”.
Sony Pictures is releasing the film on August 13th. The R rating the film was initially given would have prevented anyone under 17 from seeing the film without an adult.
