Docu fails to ignite censors

LONDON — “Fahrenheit 9/11” has received a 15 rating in the U.K., passing the scrutiny of the British Board of Film Classification without a tremor.

Will Clarke of distrib Optimum Releasing had made strong representations to the BBFC that it should not follow the path of the MPAA by issuing an 18 rating (the nearest Brit equivalent to an R). “We’ve had no trouble at all,” he said. “The situation in America is ridiculous. It says a lot about the state of American democracy.”

“Fahrenheit 9/11” will open July 9 on around 100 screens in the U.K. Previews are scheduled with deliberate symbolism for July 4.
