    Luckily I have also never seen Showgirls.

    Honestly, only interested in watching because of the group of calling for the Netflix boycott. They are the type that if they are boycotting something, I generally want to support it.

    On the other hand, my streaming backlog is already pretty big.

    I'm not gonna solve this anytime soon.

    It's not required viewing in film school?

    We stand around and burn copies of it actually, along with The Godfather Part 3.

    I feel I can now say this whole thing is much ado about nothing.

    I'm afraid that in the end, it might be in that respect a balancing act between not wanting Netflix to win and not wanting the film's creator to lose...

    She's a first time director and I'm sure we need more women of color behind the camera, particularly those with an immigrant experience (her parents are Senegalese and for those who haven't seen the movie, the main protagonist is from a Senegalese Muslim family). I really hope she won't give up directing because of this whole thing.

    Just going to add that despite having first been broadcast in French theaters since August 19th, it took until the backlash on Netflix for pushback about Cuties to reach our end of the Pond.

    I saw a tweet yesterday alleging that the dialogue is also very explicit, including scenes of the children discussing oral sex and exposing their breasts (discussing it, I mean, not doing it) to their "boyfriends." I'm prepared to take the tweet at face value because it included a clip that supposedly backed up the claims. I did not watch it, but I still kind of take it as being somewhat corroborating.

    It would be of interest to contrast this with the treatment of boys in film. I feel like there's a proud tradition of male children spouting sexually explicit dialogue in films and it's generally seen as "hilarious" in those cases. I'm not really making a strong point, just wondering aloud.

    A lot of French movies are a lot more explicit than American ones, imho, and not necessarily just in terms of what is shown graphically. As to your second point, I'd wager there's a lot more crude stuff being said or alluded to in last year's Good Boys than there is in Mignonnes.

    I'd say it's less them discussing oral sex and more them indicating they've got no idea how sex works in the first place. And the 'exposing their breasts' talk is them trying to act like they're older online and failing at it.
