Controversy Turned ‘Cuties’ Into One Of Netflix’s Most Popular Movies
quote:

As sadly expected, the outcry over a French coming-of-age drama has turned it into a must-see movie.

Well, that was expected. After an initial firestorm of displeasure over the initial poster for Netflix’s Cuties brought the film into the public eye, online outrage started up all over again when the film actually debuted on the streaming site this past Wednesday. Absent this outcry, French-Senegalese filmmaker Maïmouna Doucouré’s directorial debut would likely have slid under the radar, as just one indie/festival darling that premiered on the streaming service alongside the more high-profile movies like The Babysitter: Killer Queen (now the top-ranked movie) and TV shows like Julie and the Phantoms. Alas, thanks to the controversy, Cuties, a foreign-language coming-of-age melodrama about a young girl who is torn between her traditionalist family and her provocative new friends, is now the fourth-biggest movie on the site.


quote:

In a classic “depiction equals endorsement” firestorm, the film has come under fire for the very thing it seeks to condemn. Yes, there are scenes where the actresses engage in “twerking” and use their would-be feminine whiles to get out of trouble, and the movie looks down upon these moments with a critical (but sympathetic) eye. If anything, the film follows the formula of Mean Girls, where our naive protagonist becomes the villain of her own story by acting out in ways that put even her new (more socially aware) friends at a distance. If this movie were about the dangers of underage drinking, you’d have to show kids getting drunk. This is the “Peter Rabbit lets Peter trigger Mr. McGregor’s blackberry allergy!” on proverbial steroids.

I just binged this with my daughter. It’s an informative show about reaching for your dreams and the importance of team work.

If Democrats take control expect pedophilia to become publicly supported in the near future.

I saw the trailer and thought oh this is kiddie porn

I read Some reviews about the plot and I get It, but it’s still seems way too far out of my comfort zone.

Progressives will never normalize the sexualization of prepubescent children, Pimp. That could never happen. That’s as crazy as saying that The Left wants violence in the streets or the Left wants to get rid of the National anthem or allow you to select your gender or would oppose Free Speech or favor reparations or lock down bars and restaurants or...

We told y’all this was next when progressive loons started down the normalization of transgernderism and sex changes for children. We told y’all and the response was quit being a bigot. The slippery slope isn’t real.



It’s real

Nobody told anyone anything. We all just sit here and watch/let it happen.


Just shut up, you stupid fricking a-hole. You’re as responsible as the rest of us.

re: Controversy Turned ‘Cuties’ Into One Of Netflix’s Most Popular Movies
Im sorry, you must be new to this website. There is a large contingent disgusted with gender reassignment if prepubescent kids kn this site and most of us who voice our displeasure consistently brought up child specialization would be next.

And how is it my fault when I don’t watch, condone, or participate in any of this child sexualization?

The movie makes valid points

Netflix is the one that sexualized kids for money
