The picture was classified and rated with a restricted NC-17 rating in the USA due to its explicit sexual content. Distributor Fine Line Features decided not to appeal the decision in order to try and gain a lower classification rating to make the movie marketable and able for younger audiences to attend. The New York Times reported "Fine Line Features, the art-film division of New Line Cinema, has accepted the rating for 'Wide Sargasso Sea (1993)' which includes male frontal nudity". See more »
This movie takes a great, rich, wonderful novel and reduces it to the level of near soft porn. So much time is spent on silly, pointless nude scenes that the plot has to be severely condensed. Major plot points seem to happen suddenly, without context or explanation and characters are poorly developed And the nude scenes aren't even very good, they were just cheesy - after the second or third time Rochester and Antoinette stripped, I was laughing out loud.
The film has some great Jamaican locations, but that's about the only good thing I can say for it.
