Chiaramonte Films Inc. said it will appeal its rating on “Twogether,” which was assigned an NC-17 rating in the 1,256th bulletin from the Motion Picture Assn. of America’s Classification & Rating Administration.
The pic, starring Nick Cassavetes, was reviewed at last year’s Cannes Film Festival (Daily Variety, June 12).
Attempts to contact “Twogether” sales agent GEL Distribution about the NC- 17 rating were unsuccessful yesterday.
In more mainstream areas, Paramount Pictures Corp.’s UFO thriller “Fire in the Sky” pulled down a PG-13 and New Line Cinema’s “Who’s the Man?” received an R.
In one of the quirkiest recent ratings, 20th Century Fox’s “Sandlot” received a PG for “some language and kids chewing tobacco.”
Among the eight movies rated, one movie received an NC-17, three movies received Rs, two received PGs, one received a PG-13 and another received a G.
