Is Keira Knightley's short film Cut too violent for TV?

Women’s Aid and Grey London created a domestic violence awareness campaign, the centerpiece of which is a 2-minute long short film starring actor Keira Knightley (Pirates of the Caribbean, Atonement) and directed by Joe Wright (Atonement, The Soloist). The video, launched April 2, 2009, was intended to run on television and in movie theatres. By the end of the month British television had banned it for being "too shocking."

  1. I think it's definitely brutally honest, but it gets the message across & it definitely sticks in your mind. I think sometimes shock is an important aspect in getting the message across especially when it comes to something like domestic violence. This makes an impact, which is what it is supposed to do!
