Harvey Weinstein and the Ratings Controversy Over 'Bully'

By and large, I don't care what movies are rated. I don't have kids, so it doesn't make a difference to me. But when I saw Bully, a new documentary about the affect of bullying on teens, I knew full well that it had been rated R and that its distributor, the Weinstein Company, was fighting it. The movie comes out on Friday, so I wrote at length over at Gawker about why I don't think it should be a controversy at all.
