TONE DEAF: Oscar Buzz For Movie About Romance Between 25-Year-Old Man And 17-Year-Old Boy by Paul Bois

TONE DEAF: Oscar Buzz For Movie About Romance Between 25-Year-Old Man And 17-Year-Old Boy by Paul Bois

Some excerpts:

In the wake of the Harvey Weinstein scandal, as scores of Hollywood’s A-list talent and power brokers are being exposed for their alleged sexual misconduct, it seems oddly tone deaf for the industry to hail as an “Oscar contender” a movie about a 25-year-old man seducing a 17-old-boy.

Yet, the movie, “Call Me By Your Name,” stars Armie Hammer (“The Social Network”), as a lecherous 25-year-old preying on the 17-year-old Timothée Chalamet (“Interstellar”) during one hot Italian summer in 1983.

Following the revelations that Kevin Spacey allegedly pursued sex with underaged boys, a movie about the pitfalls of that lifestyle seems apt. Has Hollywood finally found what Weinstein once described as its “moral compass”?

Not in the least. In fact, just one year after Tinseltown awarded Best Picture to a movie featuring two male teens giving each other handjobs on a Miami beach, the industry seems intent on pumping the creep factor up to 11. Hardly a cautionary tale, “Call Me By Your Name” is a romance of depraved proportions.

..The film now holds a 98% on Rotten Tomatoes, with every major critic hailing the film as an erotic masterpiece.
