Evan Rachel Wood Slams MPAA for 'Censoring' Sex Scene in 'Charlie Countryman'

 

The phantasmagorical noir Charlie Countryman hit theaters earlier this month, but after finally catching up with the finished version of the film, star Evan Rachel Wood walked away none too pleased.

Music video director Fredrik Bond's first feature -- which follows Shia LaBeouf as the title character who loses himself to love, mystery, and the colorful underbelly of Bucharest -- debuted at the 2013 Sundance Film Festival before heading back to the editing room for another round of tinkering.

During that process, scenes of intimacy between LaBeouf's and Wood's character, a local cellist Charlie falls for upon first sight, were cut out because of MPAA demands.

Wood took to Twitter Wednesday afternoon to call out the movie ratings organization, who describe themselves as "a board of parents who consider factors such as violence, sex, language and drug use, then assign a rating they believe the majority of American parents would give a movie."

The MPAA rated Charlie Countryman for "some brutal violence, language throughout, sexuality/nudity and drug use."
