normally i live for films about complex women who kill BUT ... it’s impossible to root for a white woman killing a little black boy. it’s totally conceivable that this act was intended to encourage us to not root for her & to demonstrate how evil this woman is. okay. that makes sense. but perhaps choose a different, not overtly racist act so that all of the film’s potential feminist politics don’t fly out the window??
sofia coppola stayed in her lane while making the beguiled & maybe this (white) director should have as well.
