Movie star Kevin Costner has successfully challenged bosses at the Motion Picture Association of America (MPAA) to overturn a restrictive R rating for his new drama Black and White.

The actor/producer reunited with his Upside of Anger director Mike Binder for the film, in which he stars as a man fighting for custody of his biracial granddaughter.

The picture was slapped with an R classification, which prevents children under the age of 17 from seeing the film without an adult, due to a brief scene featuring strong language, but Costner appealed the ruling and he emerged victorious on Thursday, when officials at the MPAA's Classification and Rating Appeals Board lowered the rating to a family-friendly PG-13.

The movie also stars fellow Oscar winner Octavia Spencer.
