Market Forces

A review of a movie I haven’t heard of:

bq. In the ’30s, corruption-of-innocence movies were made about 21-year-olds in the big city. By the ’50s and early ’60s, the age had dropped to 16 or 17. That it’s middle school now changes everything, I think, and not just because I have two little girls. Thirteen is too early for kids to be at the mercy of rapacious market forces.Lock up your children! Our culture is getting very, very nasty. It scares me.

Intriguing review of a movie that looks like it tackles a very, very important problem. Read it in Slate. And maybe see the movie…

But I’m not really looking for anything “down” right now. So maybe someone can report back to me?
