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
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.
People are so against paedophilia presented in films like this and lolita, but they don't realise the films themselves are problematic. The actor is still a child that is being exploited and made to do nude scenes, it is child abuse in itself and disgusting. People should stop idolising such films and realise them for what they are.
Excellent movie showing how bad things were. Its huge flaw of course the child nudity could have done without it, at best only the bed scene post the bidding was ok but the other scenes could have been done when less viewing . The fact the nudity got the film banned in many places reduced its impact as a good history lesson.
This movie is undiscrible,Its disgusting.I don't even wanna talk about it,everyone finds it disgusting I never saw a movie like this.This is clear paedophilia.I understand she was an actor a model,but what her mother allowed her to do was not legal even if she was 18,Its a kid,she was the only one in movie like this,to make the pedophilia disappear,they called disgusting scenes with naked kids art.Why are people wondering so much about this movie,Brookes mother was alcoholic she couldn't even take care of herself than how would she take care of her own child,she started to be a porn star at age 10 in play boy.I mean she was selled from age 10.
The subject material is SUPPOSED to be disturbing, Louis Malle wasn’t romanticizing anything, just because it looks pretty doesn’t mean it was. There’s nothing actually pornographic about the movie, everything is suggested and it’s meant to highlight a sad, important period of time in U.S. history, stuff like this actually happened and it’s still happening.
Great movie about exploiting children, but then the movie production also exploits a child. 'They made their point'
But I have to admit this scene is so much disturbing seeing an expression of a child, she probably barely had to act for this scene.
