Director Channing Godfrey Peoples's story of American Beauty Queen pageant is given a 15 age rating in the UK by the BBFC.
The movie was released in the US during the middle of the COVID-19 pandemic and did reasonably well considering it was only released in a handful of drive-in movie theatres.
The movie stars Nicole Beharie and Kendrick Sampson and has been critically praised, although movies that have strong American themes often dont do well in the UK.
Here is a breakdown of the BBFC ratings decision.
The Movie was passed uncut.
