... written and directed by Deborah Kampmeier - calls for Fanning's character to be raped in one explicit scene and to appear naked or clad only in "underpants" in several other horrifying moments.I lost hope for Hollywood's soul a long time ago. If you ever doubt what self described caring, civilized, liberal, educated people are willing to do to make a buck, or be on the "cutting edge" of their art - have no more. These adults, including her parents, should be in jail; instead they are trolling Senator Clinton's constituents for cash, and coming back with bags of cash. Cash soaked with a child's innocence.
Fanning's mother, Joy, and her Hollywood agent, Cindy Osbrink, see the movie as a possible Oscar vehicle for the pint-size star.
Fanning's carefully choreographed rape scene has already been filmed. But then the production - which also stars Robin Wright Penn, David Morse and Piper Laurie - was shut down for lack of funds. Penn, who's also an executive producer, gave a pep talk to the dispirited cast in the days leading up to the shutdown. The desperate producer, Jen Gatien, daughter of former club czar Peter Gatien, sent out an SOS to New York entertainment entrepreneur Lawrence Robins. Robins located emergency investors, filming resumed, and the movie is scheduled to wrap tomorrow.
When the police dig around a pedophile's apartment after his arrest, and this is in his CD collection, I hope "Joy" gets a thank-you note from the victim's parents.
