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."

We invite you to watch the video and then vote in the poll below. Do you agree with the censors? Please comment below as well! Thank you!




Poll results will be posted Monday, June 29th.
