+ - British film 'Creation' banned in USA-> 8

thesappho writes "From the story : "British film 'Creation' will not be coming to the United States because of its controversial theme. While the film opened the Toronto Film Festival to rave reviews, the religious undertones surrounding this Darwin biopic appear to be to much for the U.S. ". It seems that the film could not find even one distributor to be aired. Is this a kind of banning? negligence? censorship? or business decision?"

        boycotted, blackballed, shunned sounds like a cartel not allowing the movie in.

      Can you watch the movie in the USA?
      Pressure was exerted and the movie was not picked up by US distributors.
      Banned is correct.
      "does not have any distributors" makes it sound like any other movie that would was not picked up on a purely cash/return calculation.
