    People that dont like these films are the same people that complain that younger characters are being played by older teenagers.

    I can understand concerns but I think being on a film set is much different than the final movie. The scenes are kept short, parents are near by, the other actor is trusted and they have a rapport, the scenes have been rehearsed, there are interruptions, crew members are everywhere, equipment... etc. Editing, lighting and music give the film an entirely different look and feel in the end. Sadly, deliberate sexualization for shock value does happen and that's not okay.

    • Katia Olivares
      Katia Olivares 2 дня назад

      These movies aren't even promoting pedophilia (except maybe the ones with Brooke Shields, she got sold as a sex icon by her own parents and that's sick), some are all about showing a reality that does happen, like Lolita, where Humbert sees her as this enchanting, sultry siren, when in reality she was suffering because of him taking advantage of her, something that needs more analysis, since we're watching the movie from Humbert's point of view after all. Or the one with Dakota, who clearly struggles when she gets raped and we, as human beings, can't help feel all her sorrow and desperation.

      There is something between childhood and adulthood. How old were you when you had the first time sex? When you were still a teenager then you were practising hebephilia or ephebophilia .
      Hebephilia/ephebophilia is tolerated in most countries (especially ephebophilia ). Hebephilia/ephebophilia is sexual attraction towards a teenager or among teenagers (11-14/14-17 y), pedophilia is sexual attraction towards a child or among children (0-11 y). And rape among children also happens (unfortunately).
      The age of consent differs from country to country (between 14 and 21 y).
      And 100 years ago grown up men were marrying young teenage girls ( they STILL do in some muslim countries, f.e.) and everybody thought it was normal (my 21 year old grandfather married my 16 year old grandmother which he fell in love with on her 15th birthday, so you think he was a pedophile then?). What will be in 100 years? It's your own society which tells you what you should consider as normal and what should be frown upon. AND there is definitely a difference between hebephilia, ephebophilia and pedophilia. You are not a child playing with toys and then ... boom ... you are suddenly an adult doing mature stuff.
      For someone who called himself "being reality" you seem to be very uninformed and condemning. Pointing with your fingers at movies who just show the world's reality. A reality which is far away from being political correct.

I'm still grossed out

    Well, it all depends on the maturity of the teenager. Yes, i agree that few of these picks were too much, but few of these roles are meant for teenagers. Like, the Exorcist was literally about a preteen getting possessed. Who tf is gonna play her? a 25 year old? smh

    Those actors had the maturity some people in their 20's don't have... They are intelligent enough to understand the difference between acting and living... The thing is that all of them have become some of the best actors out there... Their commitment is something just a few people have and I bet they have never felt harassed or abused... Those actors are intelligent people.

    Some of these roles played do happen in real life and these movies made are an artistic depiction of reality that people are too afraid to face. This is why they scapegoat the industry for making the casting decisions they do for their films. Do they expect a 20 year old to look like they're in high school? (genetics debates aside). If the child/teen and parent(s) are willing, this is a pure act of free will. No one is harmed.

    I think you forgot the part where Mathtiada(potman) tries to suduce Leon. And sorta seceded he was efectted though telling he'd a bad lover.for her, then went to tell how he lost his last lover. Also he says later at the end he to live with get and down roots( you know have kids) France didn't to care and as it should have been showed. But America cut even the DVD a a first it took me for ever to find the dialog. Gary's. Character comes off sexual with her because he assumes she and Leon are already lovers. Danny's character also asumes it but rconsiders her a golddigger and dosent help as leon asumed he would.

    No idea how you figure these roles are 'too mature'. If the script calls for a 10 year old kid, you cast a 10 year old kid. Empire of the Sun, for instance, is a goddamn autobiographical account of what happened to J.G. Ballard when he was that age. How could you possibly cast anyone older for the role?

  • Chloe Roberts

    The thing about Romeo and Juliet is that in the play, Juliet is 13 (almost 14), so if you cast the role with someone any older than Claire Danes was, it takes away from the entire purpose of the story.

    If you think these roles are too demanding for a child actor, you have obviously never seen a kdrama, especially a sageuk...
    I remember for example a very young prince (6-7 years) who drank an acidic poison in order to save his mentor's life. He knew that is was going to be an incredibly painful death, but the only alternative was making the General (who considered his only friend and an older "brother") to drink the poison in his stead. When his mentor arrived and held him in his arms, he begged him to kill him because his internal organs were literally melting and the pain was excruciating. Such a sad scene...

    Kirsten Dunst is such a great actress. Natalie Portman too. But in particular, Dunst in Interview the the Vampire. She was better in that role, by a LONG SHOT, than Brad Pitt was. Its bad when you get out acted by a 10 year old. Tom Cruise was spot on tho, my fav. role of his.

    The majority of children do not understand the full consequences of their actions until they hit a minimum of age 18. These children might have said that they were comfortable and consenting with these roles, do not truly understand its full consequence and might have lasting effects as an adult. Children are very impressionable and they absorb everything like a sponge.
