Dakota Fanning, the talented pre-teen actress stars in a film that portrays a sexually promiscuous twelve year old girl and in one scene her rape. Although writer and director of the film Deborah Kampmeier says the movie doesn't actually show in detail the rape, the scenes in the movie reportedly still leave a lot to be desired.

Maybe the most controversial film heading to this month's Sundance Film Festival concerns the rape of a 12-year-old girl while Elvis Presley is heard singing in the background.

"HoundDog," written and directed by Deborah Kampmeier, is already getting more advance attention than "Chapter 27," the film about Mark David Chapman murdering John Lennon.

That's because the character played by 12-year-old actress Dakota Fanning, who made her mark six years ago in "I Am Sam," is raped onscreen....


Please visit the link provided for the complete story.


What could possibly be the point of making such a movie? I'm all for freedom of speech and whatever else, but c'mon, the movie theaters are going to be packed with perverts with their pants down around their ankles.

Peace

I figured I bump this since it was pending in ATSNN for a while.

Shot down again!

Come on, you actually think the whole movie is about that ONE scene?
This stuff happens in real life, so why should it not be allowed to show in a movie? I say it's a big fuzz about nothing. It's a movie people! If you don't like it, don't watch it...

You know, it just goes to show what people will do for a buck. What's even more amazing to me is that this young girls parents even allow her to play such a role.

While it can be argued that things like this goes on in real life, do we really need to see a movie made about an eleven or twelve year old nymphomaniac? I think people are aware that they exist and to show a scene of a child being raped is deplorable.

I wont ever suggest the censorship of anything. Ever. So I think its funny when people go on about "this happens in real life why not make a movie about it?"

Okay thats fine. They can make a movie about anything they want. Ive never said the movie shouldnt have been made. Im sure some people have.

But I am free to question the typ of parenting that allows this. I am free to say I think its digusting. I am free to believe this is just going to make her a Jean Bennet level target for scumbags across the world and all the perverts who arent currently jacking it to this girl will soon be doing just that.

I, also, fail to see how dramatizing the reality that these things happens does anyone any good. Are the profits from the film going to help abused kids and jail the pervs? Is a perv who sees this movie going to suddenly stop raping children? No. All thats going to happen is good, decent people will be sickened by something that already sickens them and pedophiles, criminals and perverts will have another fantasy to think about and a nice DVD to jack it too while they wait for their daughters to come home from school.

I hate how Hollywood has been reduced to shock-jockery and constant political commentary. What happened to the entertainment?

I think its quite sickening to be honest and cant imagine that film being released over here in UK.

It puzzles me that we punish the perverts that physically harm children and sexually molest them yet its ok fo someone to make a film dramatising the whole thing

I can just imagine all the pervs and weirdos going to the cinema to watch this or getting it out on DVD along with a box of Kleenex.

It is a taboo subject and should remain that way for the safety of our children. How many perverts are going to use the excuse "I never had thoughts that way until i watched that film then i just wanted to rape young girls"!!!!!!!!!

I was thinking the same thing. What kind of sick, maniac parents allow their twelve year old to play such a provocative role. And we wonder why so many of these child actors are basketcases when they grow up.

I think Victor Salva is prime example of one rule for some and one rule for another. What Salva was convicted of is incredibly nasty but he serves a minor sentance and then resumes his role as hollywood film maker raking in cash and constantly putting gratuitous shots of young boys with no shirts in his movies. It's like nobody even cares about what he did.

Holloywood is nothing but perverts, look at the way they gatherd around Woody Allen when he was molesting his adopted daughter. Their have been a lot of movies made in the last 10 years depicting sex with children because so many perverts run hollywood.

He cant come back to the US or he'll get arrested for his perversion.

Hollywood is full of these people it seems.

The music industry is much worse. What kind of adult excitedly fullfills his role knowing his fans are all 11-14 years old? I work right across from a very popular music venue and its sick to see these adolescents dressed the way they are, behaving the way they are and its even sicker to look up at the tour bus and know its filled with 30 year old guys. How the hell do they sleep at night? With a minor I suppose.

Movies, music, television, media, its all set up to destroy us. Its doing a fantastic job of it. It takes our money, it desensatizes us, it glorifies bad behavior, it brings crime and perversion into the mainstream and all of this is focused at 2+. Yup, TV ratings are done on a 2+ scale. That means 2 year olds and over are included in its demographic. Its disgusting.

maybe this movie will be highly emotional (and, thus, great) because of this scene and because of the film as a whole...

why should we say "why the heck are they making a movie like this" just because of one scene and some pedophiles that might enjoy it...

yes, when i first read the title of this thread, i thought it was gross...

but, now that i have read that it is a movie, i think it can be a huge success (not because of the scene, but the movie in general)...

A scene depicting rape is not new to cinema. A scene depicting rape of an under aged female is not new. A scene depicting rape of an adult is not a new thing.

Also, is rape depicted on screen any more horrific then the sadistic and exxagerated torture/murder of individuals? Is rape depected on screen any more horrific then someone being forced to 'bite the curb', someone having their knee caps blown off with a shotgun...someone being flogged, tortured and then executed on a cross?

I am sure that all of the aformentioned scenes were depicted much more graphically then this rape scene is.

I have never believed in censoring anything......until now. Horror films murder people in all manner of ways, torture and even rape exist in films. As with many other people though i think this should not be shown, after reading about the film i honestly believe that scene probably isn't needed to show the story.

The story i would support but the actual scene should be removed as it's just not needed and quite disgusting if it depicts a simulated incident of rape with a child.

There have of course been other movies which were questioned at the time, lolita springs to mind as an obvious choice, what about Leon? Natalie Portman was young in that and showed promiscuity, but there was no actual scene and that to me makes a massive difference.

Films, music and games shouldn't be suppressed most of the time, but certain things like this are just awful. I hope no one will buy it.

Edited for truly awful spelling, sorry to anyone who read it before edit.

I don't think that's so horrible. 12 year old girls never get to tell their stories. I don't know why people assume a scene with the rape of a 12 year old girl is going to inspire more lust than disgust.

It's not like their peddling kiddie porn. They just made a movie that involves a world that peddles kiddie porn? Am I wrong?

Maybe it's not the sexual fecundity of adolescence that compels us as much as the brutal ways age consumes it.

Extremely disturbing but not new. Brooke Shields part in Pretty Baby was even more disturbing imo and that was what? 30 years ago. Yeah the parents lack good judgement but what about those that concieve the idea?

Not having seen the movie, or read any reviews, I have to ask: is Dakota Fanning portraying a nymphomaniac is the movie? Where does the "eleven or twelve year old nymphomaniac" come into play here?

I am in general agreement with you on that one, except that I believe there must be limits for underage children.

Wow I find it strange that some people are up in arms about a movie. Have those same people been to a rape crisis center or a child crisis center? They seem so concerned about an actress and her parents and yet do they have concern about the real abuse kids are going through? Enough to do something about it? Nah sounds like people just like to whine and cry about Hollywood. Maybe this movie can bring attention to a real problem and make people think about it and do something. Seems to have worked for global warming, kinda.

The truth is that there are children who are overly sexual. Sometimes it's brought on by early sexual abuse, but I'm sure that goes without saying. My GF works with these kids all of the time in her job. She works with developmentally disabled children in a psych ward at a hospital. Some of the stories she brings home are horrible. However, we can't just say that because a story is disturbing that it shouldn't be made.

I agree, it's up to the parents to consent to their children playing these roles, and at the same time, help them understand why it's important that people see that these things happen. Of course, I'm sure the parents in this case are doing it for the paycheck, and not for the betterment of mankind.
