BRIDGETOWN, BARBADOS (AP) - A censorship board has reversed a decision to ban theaters in Barbados from showing “Black Swan” because of its sexual and violent content.

The Cinematograph Film Censorship Board reviewed its decision after a theater filed an appeal. The board announced Wednesday the movie would be shown under an “R” rating.

Hundreds of people signed an online petition asking the Caribbean nation’s board to reverse its decision. Hundreds more joined a Facebook page titled “For Freedom of Thought and Expression in Barbados.”

The psychosexual thriller is nominated for a best picture Oscar.
