Episode 519: Cuties (2020)

Guest Co-Hosts: Judith Mayne, Angela Mac

We're discussing the controversial 2020 film from Maïmouna Doucouré, Cuties. It's the story of Amy (Fathia Youssouf), a young immigrant girl from Senegal living in Paris and desperate to fit in with the girls she sees as "cool" at her school. Her home life is collapsing as her father is due to return from Africa with a new bride who threatens to displace Amy, her mother, and her little brother.

Judith Mayne and Angela Mac join Mike to see if all the hullabaloo about the film is merited or if it's just a Ted Cruz tempest in a teapot.
