Actress Dakota Fanning’s irresponsible handlers, including, apparently, her mother, have put the 15-year-old star in another adult drama, this time one that includes a “steamy” lesbian kiss, a “heavily implied” lesbian sex scene and scenes of snorting cocaine in bathrooms.
The movie is about the early career of openly lesbian rock star Joan Jett and her first band.
Even Kirk Honeycutt, a film critic for the Hollywood Reporter, wondered whether the movie glamorizes the addictive behavior depicted in the script.
Fame and fortune have corrupted Dakota’s mother, who has made some bad calls that are getting worse by the second. Those decisions have become abhorrent.
Ninety-five percent of the time, when an actress starts to go down this road of doing cutting-edge parts, her career crumbles, because most moms and dads, and even most teenagers, don’t like these kinds of movies.
When younger, Dakota’s movies were honored by Movieguide®, but 2007′s “Hounddog” marked a abhorrent turn in her road to stardom. In “Hounddog,” Dakota’s character is raped – Dakota was 13 years old at the time the movie was made.
She’s now gone on to be a part of the blood-sucking “Twilight” vampire movies and now stars in “The Runaways” as a drug-addicted, teenage rock singer who gets involved in a lesbian affair with Joan Jett.
Fanning has already shot her part in the third “Twilight” installment and will have the lead role in “Betsy and the Emperor” about Napoleon’s supposedly platonic relationship with a teenage girl.
The sexualization of children and young teenagers is one of the most reprehensible goals of the left-wing, Neo-Freudian establishment, forged in the neo-fascist revolutionary fires of Marxism in the late 1800s and early 1900s and refined in the socialist upheavals of the cultural Neo-Marxism and revolutionary zeal of 1960s radicals and terrorists like Bill Ayers and his wife, along with political allies and too many friends of the current administration.
Please help MOVIEGUIDE® protect children like Dakota Fanning, and millions of others across the globe, from this sadistic abuse of our youths and this abhorrent destruction of innocence and purity.
After all, Jesus says in Matthew 18:6 that, if anyone causes a child to sin or do evil, “it would be better for him to have a large millstone hung around his neck and be drowned in the depths of the sea.”
Jesus then exclaims, in Matthew 18:7, “Woe to the world because of the things that cause people to sin! Such things must come, but woe to the man through whom they come!”
God bless those, however, who work to defeat the kinds of sins and evil that come from movies like “The Runaways” (which opens tomorrow) and that come from the debasement of children and youth like Dakota Fanning!
