Mr. Redford owes us an apology!

Hi Brit,

I;m sure you recall Robert Redford’s political rant at the opening of his Sundance Film Festival, where he demanded an apology from President Bush.  Well, after reading this, Sundance premieres ‘Hounddog’, I think RR owes an apology to everyone in the world for allowing child porn to be accepted as a serious movie.  This masterpiece that the liberals are defending features the rape of a 12 year old girl, using a 12 year old actress to film the scene.  Obviously every adult connected to the film in any way should offer profound and repeated promises while serving their jail terms for child abuse and making child pornography.  Of course, being the rich elitist liberals that they are, they don’t expect the laws to apply to them, just us peasants.  Unfortunately, they’re probably correct and this serious crime won’t even be investigated.  Typical.

    I don’t agree with the idea at all. It is however a “depiction” of an act. Clearly, if the scene proved to cross the lines of what isn’t legal I’m sure it’d have not escalated this far. I believe that a moral standpoint should have been considered, and an young looking adult should have been cast for the role. However I don’t think it’s fair to judge anyone related to the film having no idea what exactly the scene even contains. Children do face this situation in real life as well as the family associated, this movie is about triumph and success over emotional and physical abuse. If they girl isn’t portrayed in a manor that does not expose her or her rights in a manor that shouldn’t. I don’t see what the fuss is about. I personally wont watch it, it’s a “personal moral conflict” but I don’t think that objects (movies, music, etc…) can and do help to educate and make people aware of events and often have a positive influence on society. You shouldn’t be so negative, but then again you probably denounced broke back mountain as well…. “Typical”.
