ANDesterday Netflix has released some promotional artwork and a trailer for a new movie called Cuties (Cute, in its French original). It is the first feature film by Maïmouna Doucouré, a young filmmaker whose short film Moms won a Caesar in 2017. That same year, his screenplay for Cuties won the Sundance World Directing Award, which allowed him to develop the film, which would go on to win the Directing Jury Award at that year’s Sundance. and get caught by Netflix. It’s fair to say, then, that the film had to land on the platform with a lot of advanced hype.Unfortunately, Netflix missed the release. Cuties speaks, according to her synopsis, of Amy, an 11-year-old Senegalese Muslim, torn between the traditional values ​​of her community and a group of rebellious young girls. As a result, the artwork selected to accompany the film’s previews on Netflix, depicts Amy and other gang members in various twerking poses, presumably playing some sort of routine. The photo is fairly tasteless, featuring the girls in bared tube tops and sexualized poses, which led to calls online for the film to be canceled (from people who hadn’t seen it) .
