The Weinstein Company says the rating for the film documentary "Bully" has been lowered from R to PG-13.
The company says an edited version of the film will be released April 13 with a PG-13 rating from the Motion Picture Association of America.
The MPAA originally gave the film an R rating for language and declined to change it when the Weinstein Co. appealed. An R rating restricts kids under age 17 from seeing the movie without an accompanying adult, so the company released the film March 30 in limited release without a rating.
The Weinstein Co. says three uses of an expletive were removed to earn the PG-13 rating.
"Bully" examines school bullying by following five kids over the course of a school year. former East middle school student Alex Libby is one of the students profiled and part of the movie was filmed in Sioux City. It's directed by Lee Hirsch.
