Amelie??? Update!

Amelie??? Update!

has anyone seen this?
i ask because my dual-enrolled 15 year old is taking French at university and this is a movie they are planning to watch for the course. The instructor did inform my dd that it is rated R and I have read up on it a bit and see there are some nudity scenes but my question to anyone who has actually seen this is how big a deal is this?
obviously I would prefer none, but i am trying to decide if I should request a different movie or simply talk to my dd about it beforehand. This dd is quite mature but also we are pretty conservative when it comes to stuff like this. Any advice from those who have seen the movie would be appreciated. Thanks so much.

I watched this movie based on someone's excellent review and, regrettably, it had some very graphic sex scenes. I wouldn't want my daughter to see it.

You are between a rock and a hard place. A University professor is probably picking movies assuming he has a class of young adults. But, too bad so sad. Make him pick a different movie. If I would not watch it myself, no one is going to show it to my minor children.

Dd talked with professor and professor said she completely understood and would work around this for dd (who explained she was a Christian and as such would not view pornography).

God is so good! Will update on what alternatives are when we find out, but wanted to share the good news.

Excellent praise and I'm so glad that worked out! :)

I was thinking, as well. . . in the very current hashtag-me-too climate of inappropriate to downright immoral mistreatment of women in the media and Hollywood, there is a perfectly pragmatic reason (for anyone in that college class, not just a Christian), to oppose a film that would in essence disrespect women by making "entertainment" out of nu .. dity and the private relations between men and women, that ought to be privately joyful, not public consumption.

You must be very proud of her; she "dared to be Daniel" as the song goes. And it takes some courage in today's harshly anti-Christian academic climate.

Thanks M4J! I am very proud of her! Truth be told, she’s stronger than me. I wouldn’t have spoken up - I am weak.

Excellent point on the Metoo. I am going to remember hat in case we have any more issues.

Thanks!
