MPAA Ratings Bulletin No. 2191 (9/28/11)


As a continuing feature here at Awards Circuit, here are the latest ratings provided by the MPAA Ratings Board – The Classification and Ratings Administration (CARA).

In this edition, dated 9/28/11, two Oscar hopefuls, “Carnage” and “We Need To Talk About Kevin”, go in front of the Board and a whole host of independent and potentially straight-to-video releases get their marks.  Curiously, a film known as “The Good Doctor” starring Orlando Bloom, Michael Pena, Troy Garity, Rob Morrow, and Taraji P. Henson won a ratings appeal but still lacks domestic distribution.
