Would you allow your 11 year old to watch it?
that's a tough one...if she was in a similar situation or I thought it would be relevant, I could watch it with an 11 yo daughter...but probably not, unless I thought she was going to watch it anyway.
not taking a shot at your son, but an opinion formed on the marketing of the movie isn't really relevant.But in the children's world that is pretty much what is happening. They aren't discussing the lesson to be learned. They are snickering and making jokes about the clips.
I formed this opinion after talking to my teenagers. A friend of mine brought the movie up this weekend.
My son's opinion is that it is disgusting and is just providing "candy" for pedos. I brought up that the concept of the movie was to show how disgusting it is. He hasn't seen the movie (and says that he won't) but things he's seeing shared between teens (on social media) about the movie are the glamorous clips and inappropriate comments, none of the "lesson learning" issues brought up or discussed. His final thought was that the lesson should have been taught in a way that didn't provide the visual material to be so freely used in inappropriate ways.
I have mixed emotions about this. I remember my dad having a fit when my sister went to see the movie 'Little Darlings'. However, my sister loved it and every teen girl that actually saw the movie did, too and came away with the clear moral of the story.
That being said, I do know that some of the clips that I have seen clearly fit the legal description of child pornography. We shall see if 'in the name of art' will save them.
If it doesn't, Lord help us all. It will open a dark door, imo.
No, none of the clips you have seen fit the legal definition of pornography. There's a moment where a HS girl flashes a nipple, but there's the 'plausibly 18 and not sexual'. Other than that, nothing in the movie is pornographic.
I'm not listening to any opinions that begin with "I haven't seen the movie, but..."
