I've never really thought about this before, but there are many R-rated films containing actors who aren't old enough to go see the film without supervision.
The Boston Globe reported that Aaron Wolff, Danny Gopnik in A Serious Man, wasn't allowed to go see himself on the silver screen when he and a group of friends went to their local theater. Turns out Aaron is only 15 and the theater stood by the standard policy of a legal guardian needing to be present if you're under the age of 17. That's a bummer man.
Aaron's mom came down to escort him and his friends, but the theater wouldn't allow the gang in because Mrs. Kogan wasn't the legal guardian of the other boys. I understand why the rule is in place and feel it needs to be upheld, but seriously? You star in a Coen film and can't even purchase a ticket to see it? That just doesn't seem right.
