Films with sexual violence will get 18 ratings after MeToo backlash

“We have 92 per cent approval ratings [for ratings decisions] and the reason for that is that we consult the public,”… A five-yearly study by the British Board of Film Classification (BBFC) has found the public believed the current 15 ratings for films containing sexual violence were inappropriate and should be raised to 18. David Austin, BBFC’s chief executive, told the NSPCC’s conference on children’s safety online that the BBFC would introduce the higher ratings if the findings were confirmed in follow-up research.  Film censors are set to impose 18 ratings on films with sexual violence after a public backlash over “liberal” classifications following the #MeToo movement against sex assaults.
