I watched this movie last night. I must admit it disturbed me. The film states that it is about a film student who is doing a film about child abuse and meets a 14 year old boy who is being physically abused by his parents. He wants the boy to star in his film. Both the film student and the young boy are gay. They eventually fall in love and have a physical relationship.
While watching this movie I couldn't help but wonder. Is this about child abuse or pedophilia? The scenes of abused children are shocking, and not for the faint of heart. However; I get the impression the child abuse plot line is secondary to the love affair plot line. The film student (who's in his late 20's) wants to save the boy from his abusive parents. Parents you barley ever see on screen. However; he ends up sexually molesting the boy instead. This is how you save a child in jeopardy?
The moral of this movie teaches that falling in love with a child and having a sexual relationship with that child is all right. I myself am not gay; however; I don't think the gay community would agree to this.
If you are a pedophile you'll love this movie. The rest of us should keep as far away as possible.
It's sad when we can call the sexual abuse of a child art.
