London: Director Mike Leigh's Oscar-nominated Turner Biopic "Mr Turner" has been named Britain's most complained-about film Of 2014.
According to the British Board of Film Classification (BBFC), the acclaimed movie, starring Timothy Spall as the artist, upset more cinema-goers than any other in the last 12 months, reported Daily Telegraph.
The BBFC said the 19 complaints were "a very low figure for most complained-about film, and is a tiny proportion of those who will have seen it".
It added that the scene was acceptable in a 12A film, "given the lack of nudity, the relative brevity of the scene and its importance in terms of narrative".
The next most complained about film was the Oscar-winning "12 Years A Slave", which got a dozen complaints for a scene where a slave was shown being raped.
The another most complained about film in 2013 was the Tom Cruise thriller "Jack Reacher", which some cinemagoers regarded as too dark for a 12A.
