Parents and teenagers who appear in the documentary "Bully" pleaded Thursday with former Sen. Chris Dodd (D-Conn.), now the head of the Motion Picture Association of America (MPAA), to change the film's R rating.

And Harvey Weinstein, the film's producer who was also at the screening at the MPAA's office in Washington, echoed those pleas, saying, "The reason everyone wants the PG-13 is so kids can see the movie themselves."

Harvey Weinstein will present a Special Recognition Award to high school student Katy Butler at the 23rd Annual GLAAD Media Awards on March 24. Read more at http://www.glaad.org/blog/harvey-weinstein-present-special-recognition-a...
