Strange and difficult to watch

There is no moral of the story. The movie has no direction. Many inappropriate scenes featuring 10 year old girls. Tries to present itself as being "woke" or "progressive" but is just incredibly racist and sexist at random times for no apparent reason. All of the parents in the movie deserve an award for bad parenting. Would still be uncomfortable to watch but a lot less uncomfortable if they made the kids 18. but I'm not even sure how they manage to get away with attempting to sexualise very young children. Very shocking and extremely difficult to watch. I don't recommend this to absolutely anyone and it's most certainly "wokeness" gone too far when youre directing 10 year olds to dance seductively and strip for a potentially adult audience.

This title has:

Too much sex
