Shortly after overturning an NC-17 rating for Blue Valentine, the Motion Picture Association’s ratings board rejected an appeal to reverse its decision to give an R-rating to the on-line predator drama Trust. The MPAA gave the film, which is directed by David Schwimmer and stars Clive Owen, Catherine Keener, and Viola Davis, an R rating for “disturbing material involving the rape of a teen, language, sexual content and some violence.” The filmmakers had appealed for a PG-13 rating for the movie, which chronicles a family’s upheaval when the 14-year-old daughter is preyed upon and attacked by an on-line stalker, arguing that more teens should be made aware of the dangers of cyber predators.
