The black guys face 😔😔 this movie was messed up 😣 based on a real story aswell apparantly but the books called something else, I feel for Brooke Shields her mother really did sell her down the river 😣💖
Shields’s beauty was on the same level as Elizabeth Taylor’s of that age, but why would Brooke’s mother let her play such a role at such a young age? There was full frontal nudity of her prepubescent body in that film, too. Ugh. I am just glad she grew up to be an educated, intelligent and normal woman. It could have been much worse.
I was in my teens when this came out. Too young to see it in the theater. Only read about it in Playboy. Even then and now...it is child exploitation and it made me sick back then. Now people call it '70s art'. Disgusting!!
Her mother basically turned her daughter out. That woman, no doubt, got rich off her. Why are certain people able to conceive? They don’t deserve the privilege. Shame on her. I hope she enjoys the fortune her little girl’s innocence bought her.
I personally think the movie makes a good job at making you feel unease about the whole thing, because it is, after all, about a CHIL being abused and used. That's the whole plot, they couldn't have gathered that message with a 20 something girl. It fits that she is so young, because it HAS to make you feel uneasy. On the other hand, I wish I knew if Brooke knew what she was going for or if she was just 'sold' by her parents. I think I read somewhere she didn't mind doing those movies, so.. Not sure, honestly
@Dilan again, with animals is different, they are just innocent paws that are being killed for absolutely no reason and didn't give their consent to it (because they obviously can). On the other hand I specifically told that I wonder if Brooke knew what she was going to do in this movie or if she was just a pawn in her mother's hands. If that's the case, yes, her will was definitely abused, but I hope the whole experience was not traumatic for her. I think she grew to be a very impressive woman, and that itself, I think, really deserve recognition. Not an excuse, just saying I'm glad she was strong enough to get through all this roles at such a young age
LunaDiggory Tennant this way of thinking is gross. It’s like saying for a movie to perpetuate a horrible act there must actually be truth to it. For example, a scene abt killing a dog must consist of killing a real dog, because it ‘gathers the message’.
Idk abt you, but i would never submit myself to be portrayed in a sexual manner at such a young age, and the fact that you’re trying to excuse this is a bit.... yikes
This movie really shocked me into thinking why they cast an 11 year old underage Brooke shields with nudity instead of finding an over 18 young looking girl? I thought the film was aesthetically beautiful but there was no need for her to kiss and sleep with men in the movie it was uncomfortable.
Reality is this happens today. Right here in YouTube, look how many kids channels have adult Male subscribers. There are thousands of baby/auctions happening all the time online. Child predators can not be rehabilitated. There are women child predators too, let's not leave them out.
