Netflix recently revealed the trailer and poster for an upcoming film that would be available for streaming & right then it has sparked fire all over.
Cuties, the film is a 2020 coming-of-age comedy-drama, written and directed by Maïmouna Doucouré as her directorial debut. The story of Amy, an 11-year-old girl who originally hails from Senegal and grows up in a working-class area of Paris. She eventually defies her ‘conservative’ family when she “becomes aware of her burgeoning sexuality,” according to the film’s description.
The petition claiming it “sexualizes an 11-year-old for the viewing pleasure of paedophiles” attracted 25,000 signatures in less than 24 hours.
Its horrifying to see a show in the mainstream blatantly sexualising 11 yr old kids. If this show is still there by next month..i am canceling my Netflix subscription and so should you.
