The love story first turned heads nearly a year ago when it screened at the Sundance Film Festival. Then the MPAA &ndash; the body that hands out movie ratings &ndash; made it even more high profile by giving it a dreaded NC-17 rating. But many, including movie mogul Harvey Weinstein, felt that move was unwarranted. Weinstein got the MPAA to do something rare - change their rating to an R without requiring any cuts to the film. &quot;Blue Valentine&quot; begins playing in Chicago Thursday.&nbsp;Regular film critic Christy LeMaster joined host Alison Cuddy for a review.&nbsp;LeMaster is the managing director of <a href="http://chi.ifp.org/" target="_blank">IFP Chicago</a>, and heads the <a href="http://nightingaletheatre.org/" target="_blank">Nightingale Theatre</a> in Chicago.<br /><br />LeMaster and Cuddy also reviewed <a href="http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0775543/" target="_blank">&quot;Night Catches Up&quot;</a>.</p></p> Thu, 06 Jan 2011 15:29:00 -0600 http://www.wbez.org/episode-segments/blue-valentine-follows-demise-young-love-story
