I don't think Dakota Fanning's character was asking him that cause she was romantically interested in him. I think she asked him that cause she thought if he did, it may have been cute of him. Not sexually, just innocently cute.

In the movie “Baby Doll”, Carol Baker’s character is 19 but is portrayed sleeping in a crib and sucking on her thumb.

She’s married to a much older guy who is waiting till she turns 20 which is when, through agreement with her father, they can consummate the marriage.

So it’s not pedophilia per se, but the character is so childlike that it’s disturbing.

Extremely controversial at the time. Great film.

That's a little different, though, because it's not about someone trying to seduce or being seduced by a child but a story about a straight-up rapist serial killer of little girls.

Stanley Tucci said that at the end of a day's filming, he had to go home and take a shower and have a stiff drink to get the creepiness of the character out of him.

You have to admit with ALL these movies being made, it really does indicate there is a type of desensitization campaign underway. I think its happening right under our noses and in such a way, that people are not able to recognize whats taking place.

If you went back to the 70s or 80s and asked people if they ever thought interracial or homosexual relationships would ever be viewed in a non-negative or even positive way, many people would have said NEVER, but here we are in the 2010s.

Well, are they truly viewed that way? Or is it a media/social media driven shaming "campaign" against anyone who has personal views? And then there's the Conor Daly story who got dropped from his sponsor because his father said something 30+ years ago, when Conor wasn't even born. Pick your communist country, past and present... entire families were regularly persecuted, and imprisoned because of a parent, a child or a spouse's views.

People see what they want to see.

Or is it reflecting life? Which is what I think movies ought to do.
