Good news for Blue Valentine! EW has confirmed that the MPAA has changed the gritty indie’s dreaded NC-17 rating to a much-friendlier R after Harvey Weinstein himself appeared at today’s appeal hearing.

We’re over the moon to have the opportunity to finally be able to share it with those for whom it was intended."
