It's still inscrutable what exactly got got his and Michelle Williams' Blue Valentine that NC rating, but finally, here are some clues. Gosling argued that "the MPAA is okay supporting scenes that portray women in scenarios of sexual torture and violence for entertainment purposes, but they are trying to force us to look away from a scene that shows a woman in a sexual scenario, which is both complicit and complex. It's misogynistic in nature to try and control a woman's sexual presentation of self. Okay, so what is that "sexual presentation of self"? And is it really more shocking than the crap that's on TV, let alone at the multiplex, all the time? Over at Crushable, Kate Spencer saw the movie and says there isn't actually anything that explicit.

Blue Valentine NC Scene - Why Blue Valentine Was Rated NC Scene
Blue Valentine is a American romantic drama film written and directed by Derek Cianfrance. Cianfrance, Cami Delavigne, and Joey Curtis wrote the film, and Michelle Williams and Ryan Gosling played the lead roles as well as serving as co-executive producers for the film. The band Grizzly Bear scored the film. The film depicts a married couple, Dean Pereira Gosling and Cynthia "Cindy" Heller Williams , shifting back and forth in time between their courtship and the dissolution of their marriage several years later. Dean Ryan Gosling is a hopeless-romantic high-school dropout , working for a moving company in Brooklyn. Cindy Michelle Williams is an aspiring doctor studying pre-med whilst living with her bickering parents and caring for her grandmother in Pennsylvania. Her boyfriend, a fellow student named Bobby, brings her back to his place, where the two have intercourse, but he ejaculates inside her without her consent.
Why Hollywood Hates Bad Sex
Starring Ryan Gosling and Michelle Williams as a young, beautiful married couple whose world is coming apart despite the intense bond between them, the film Blue Valentine is as heartbreaking and heated as they come. From the day they first encounter one another to the climactic struggle that tears them apart, Dean never stops wooing Cindy, at times charming the pants off of her and at times smothering her. Close, alas, but not close enough. Door opens, revealing Dean and Cindy holding groceries and suitcases.
If your pants are all a-twitch now that the Motion Picture Association of America has dropped its annual awards poison — Blue Valentine 's controversial cunnilingus survived a downgrade to date-friendly R from the socially repugnant NC — well, better ice that crotch: the lovemaking in this year's indie favorite is far from erotic. And that's the point. Derek Cianfrance's brooding tale of a deteriorating marriage is an emotional wringer, sure, with Michelle Williams and Ryan Gosling pitted against each other as tortured lovers, once head-over-heels but suddenly, overwhelmingly, running on empty.
