Lawmakers from BOTH parties are pursuing criminal charges against Netflix for distributing the film.

I don't know what this means.

People in both main political parties in the US have spoken out against the movie, Democrats and Republicans.

Heard this, someone said, was told that, read this...



I watched the movie and loved it. I thought it brought out a spiritual problem in society that needs to be talked about. The inner turmoil that the girl lives is real in today's society, the suicide rates for young girls have skyrocketted since the advent of social media.

The backlash is a knee-jerk reaction, be careful of these and see the movie for what it is: a cautionary tale.



Hmm, I am interested how much of this outrage and the millions of lost subscriptions (where does this number come from?) is limited to the US, seemingly the forum splits evenly among americans and europeans.

Im not interested in this film but my understanding is that its more about a cultural clash of a conservative immigrant family with western culture and the entire controversy/backlash is because people are not getting that point across because of Netflix's abysmal marketing messed up that concept big time. The posters certainly didnt help.

Oh now I get it. NOW it's ok having minors not only being sexualized, but having actual nudity of children and having implicit sexual acts shown to and/or being done by children, because it's a cultural protest.

God, there is something wrong with you guys...

Is someone in this forum french. The reason I ask this question because the naked body and being naked seems to have a different meaning for the french at least from my experience. I knew a french family that when they got home, everyone stripped naked like it was nothing. Walking around naked was no big deal and they did not seem to get sexualize by. It seemed to me at the time like a cultural thing. Anyway, its interesting how showing a nipple gets Americans in an uproar but shooting, killing, murder and other such things barely register any complaints.

I.... dont think thats common. I'm not french, alot of french movies are weird, but what you just described is almost likely not common.

And since when only Americans are getting upset about this? US dosent make up for the whole world, you know.

This is the first time I've heard of cancel culture or this movie. It's a work of fiction, it's not real, who cares. What I find more disturbing is toddlers and tiaras, that is real... Kinda surreal that American show is fine, yet this movie is an outrage?

I haven't seen the movie so don't know what the problem with it is. Just watched the trailer, no clue why that is over the 'line'. It's just kids imitating the nonsense they see all over social media. Actually I'm impressed at how effective this movie is.

Anyway, not interested, still got enough to watch.

Yes, that is exactly what I said word by word. I knew you'd get it. 



By the way, to fuel the outrage culture, the movie was be shown on Sundance festival:

The director won the directing award. Seemingly nobody cared back then in February. But now the election is close, we need more political outrage.

Anyways, here is an article reporting on the conflict without the exaggeration and outrage, if you want to get a bit more neutral information on the topic:
