ClearPlay In Action!Ordinary People received an R rating for a smattering of language that mainly surfaces in two scenes. Although ClearPlay cuts about 20 to 30 instances of language throughout the film, the intense subject matter will be more appropriate for older teens and above.
Why did Oscar voters find this movie so extraOrdinary?…Like his character in The Natural, Redford figuratively steps to the plate and hits this one out of the ballpark. The movie rings true on all fronts, from the pitch–perfect acting to Alvin Sargent’s insightful, Oscar–winning screenplay. The film moves deliberately as the back story is revealed a layer at a time, which may frustrate some viewers, but it’s precisely this low–key, understated treatment that makes the movie work so well.
