Dont often get involved in this type of discussion but this caused quite a debate last night.
Kate Winslett has just won a Golden Globe for her film The Reader - and deservedly so. For those of you who dont know it involves an older woman and former Nazi concentration camp guard (Winslett) embarking on a sexual relationship with a 15 year old boy. No one seems to have anything negative to say about the film or its content. Rave reviews (obviously).
Wait a minute though...if it had been an older male playing the part of a former camp guard who basically seduced a 15 year old schoolgirl, I doubt it would have got any nominations and perhaps not made it past the censors. I can see the protests and public outcry now. So are we now saying underage is ok??
With all the abuse of children that hits the papers daily, what does this say?? Comments??
