Bacon And Firth In Sex Scene Thrust Controversy

ATOM EGOYAN's new movie WHERE THE TRUTH LIES has distributors so convinced the film's threesome sex scenes will mean a high rating in the US they're planning an appeal even before censors have considered the project.

Bosses for independent movie distributor ThinkFilm feel sure the movie will be given the commercially problematic NC-17 rating due to graphic sex scenes featuring KEVIN BACON, COLIN FIRTH and RACHEL BLANCHARD and they're planning to fight the upcoming decision by the Motion Picture Association Of America's Classification And Ratings Administration (CARA).

If the controversial film gets an NC-17 rating, as expected, the movie would be off limits for viewers under 18.

According to industry magazine The Hollywood Reporter, Egoyan has "trimmed" several scenes to appease CARA censors, but he refuses to cut the threesome scene.

Egoyan himself fails to see what all the fuss is about: "I guess I'm naive. I really had no idea it would be a problem. I just heard the deciding factor could be thrusting. Apparently, anything over three thrusts and you're in trouble. Well, nobody told me.

"I didn't even do covering shots, so there's nothing I can cut away to. This is what you get."

The film will be released in America in October (05).
