Netflix Proudly Presents "Cuties," A Movie About an 11-Year-Old Girl Who... Becomes Obsessed with... Twerking... and Then... "Explores Her Femininity"

Oh. Ohhh.

Netflix recently released the trailer for an upcoming film called Cuties--a French film that hyper-sexualizes 11-year-old girls as they form a twerking dance crew. A petition was kicked off shortly after the trailer was released that has, at the time of this writing, reeled in just shy of 28,000 signatures.

The film seems to concern a black immigrant girl who becomes "fascinated" by a Parisian "twerking crew," who also seem to be 11.

This could possibly be the Elusive Unicorn of a movie that features a Muslim family getting the hypersexualizing degredation that filmmakers like to inflict on Christian families.

But no, I don't think the movie would have gotten funded if this were a Muslim family. I would bet big money that it's a Christian immigrant family.

Either way, of course, it's awful to promote twerking -- a highly sexualized dance which is meant to simulate a woman having sex -- in 11 year olds, or feature any 11 year olds "exploring their femininity."

Netflix is now editing their descriptions of this movie. Here is the current version of the description:

Doesn't sound that objectionable. It reads:

Amy, 11 years old, tries to escape family dysfunction by joining a free-spirited dance clique called "Cuties," as they build self confidence through dance.

But compare the new language with the original language:

The original pitch read:

Amy, 11, becomes fascinated by a twerking dance crew. Hoping to join them, she starts exploring her femininity, defying her family's traditions.

It's hard to read "exploring her femininity" as intending anything but "exploring her sexuality," which is pretty much a synonym.

Obviously, that's where I've gotten the "fascinated by a twerking crew" and "exploring her femininity" language from.

Key quote from the twerking trailer, said by an adult woman to an 11 year old child:

"You're a woman now."

No, she's not.

Why are you claiming otherwise?

Update: And now, the phony apology.

"We're deeply sorry for the inappropriate artwork that we used for 'Cuties.' It was not OK, nor was it representative of this French film, which premiered at Sundance. We've now updated the pictures and description," the service told Deadline in response to the backlash.

The film, directed by first-timer Maïmouna Doucoure', has a TV-MA rating.

The art they're apologizing for features the little girls in tight clothing striking a lot of... um, exaggerated poses that just happen to show off the sorts of things pedos would be looking for.

If that art isn't representative of the film, where did it come from? Is it all just a pure photoshop?

4chan has banned pictures from this movie. I'm avoiding link that "art" myself.

No, Ace, you're wrong -- it IS about a Muslim family.

Here's my willowed comment form last thread:

A black French woman filmmaker made a movie, in that classic French pedophiliac "Peppermint Soda"-style but even worse, that has elements to piss off everyone:

a. It's about how white culture in France can and should rescue black Muslim immigrants in France from their awful oppressive immigrant culture -- so now immigrants hate the film because it exhibits "white savior complex," and moonbats hate the film because it implies that white culture is superior to black/Muslim culture.

b. The plot involves an 11-year old fundamentalist Senegalese Muslim girl who is tempted away from her culture by a clique of whorish white 11-year-old slutty girtls who form a super-sexy "twerking" dance troupe, and half the screentime is devoted to obvious softcore child porn of nearly naked actual 11-year-old actresses doing grotesque sex-imitating twerks and pole dances -- obviously intended to just titillate the pedo male French audience -- so now old-fashioned cultural conservatives hate the film for being an unapologetic X-rated child-porn mainstream film.

It would have languished in film-festival obscurity, but after winning several awards (of course), it was "picked up" by Netfilx, who are now showing it. Apparently Netfilx originally featured a very porn-y promo poster for the film, which drew many complaints, so Netflix changed the poster and apologized, but now the whole thing is in the news as a result.

The film now has the LOWEST IMDB rating I have ever seen by far: 1.6


And furthermore, literally 100% of user reviews are 1-star reviews -- something I've also never seen before:


This could be the most univerally loathed film ever.

More Netflix bullshit: here, thanks to Smoked Surfperch.
