Lovely Bones top for moans

Peter Jackson's dramatisation of acclaimed novel The Lovely Bones was the most complained-about film of the past year.

The British Board of Film Classification said it prompted the biggest postbag of the year in 2010. Cinemagoers were unhappy it was rated suitable for audiences aged 12 and upwards, when they thought it should be restricted to adults.

In its annual report, the BBFC said many viewers found the 12A-rated film to be a "shocking and unsettling experience".

Alice Sebold's novel revolved around a young girl who is murdered and watches over the subsequent lives of her family and her killer from heaven.
