People are canceling their Netflix subscriptions . . . and calling for EVERYONE to follow suit . . . over a French movie called “Cuties”.
The movie is about a group of 11-year-old girls in a sexually suggestive dance troupe. And a video of their routine from the end of the film is going viral this week, because it’s REALLY, REALLY uncomfortable.
(We’ve decided not to link the clip here, for obvious reasons.)
Netflix already faced some backlash because people thought a poster they made for the movie was too racy.
“Cuties” is getting decent reviews from critics, but it’s getting hammered by audience ratings. The filmmakers claim you’re SUPPOSED to be uncomfortable with the way the girls are dancing. And the people watching the routine in the movie obviously are. (Which begs the question: WHY did you have to put it in a movie? And why did you have to use actual underage actors?)
The clip that went viral cuts off before Amy, the main character, is unable to finish the dance and runs offstage crying. Still, it’s really shocking. Even though that’s the point of the scene, should they have gone that far???
