Print this article It may have won the Academy Award for Best Picture this year, but some changes have been made to "The King's Speech" just in time for its April 1st re-release. The Weinstein Company (TWC) recently announced that a PG-13 version of the film will open nationwide and will remain the only version of the movie left in theaters, Entertainment Weekly reports.
Although some have criticized the more family-friendly cut, which has fewer expletives, others maintain it is necessary to make the critically-acclaimed movie available to a wider audience. Having it open to young viewers is important, some say, because it may be able to help youngsters dealing with similar speech impediments as the titular King.
"The action enables those to whom it speaks most directly - young people who are troubled by stuttering, bullying and similar trials - to see it," president of theatrical distribution and home entertainment for TWC, Eric Lomis, said in an official statement. .
Parents looking for family DVDs to add to their collection may want to think about classic titles such as "Ice Age" and "Lemony Snicket's A Series of Unfortunate Events."
