Classification Update: January 27 – 31, 2014.

Each Monday I’ll be updating you with the latest classification decisions from the Australian Classification Board. 

Not a whole lot today in an update filled with DVD ratings.

Adam Rodgers’s feature debut Just One Day (known as At Middleton in the US, where it’s receiving a limited release starting January 31) that stars Andy Garcia, and sisters Vera and Taissa Farmiga as mother and daughter, appears to be going direct to DVD with an M rating. There’s also a DVD rating for Sundance smash hit Fruitvale Station, which received a very limited theatrical release at the end of last year, so hopefully more people can see it soon. Additionally, there’s a Blu Ray rating for for the Eric Bana and Rebecca Hall thriller Closed Circuit, which underperformed in the US and got a limited theatrical release in late 2013; an unsurprising MA rating for war film Lone Survivor, which has played to surprisingly high box office receipts in the US, slated to be released on February 20; TIFF 2013 closer Life of Crime; and what seems to be a re-release of the 1972 Roman Polanski documentary Weekend of a Champion that played at Cannes in 2013.
