Maiden to Maven: Young Women of Our Culture
These Hollywood youngsters are images, but they are also people. Dakota Fanning went from Charlotte's Web and The Secret Life of Bees to PUSH, The Runaways (story of Joan Jett where she plays a drug addicted lead singer) and the Twighlight Series. And she is not even among the many headliners from The Mouseketeer alma mater. Being sold a belief that they are also selling to young women, that to be innocent is to be dull. Why are they so anxious to be carnage? To be used up? Everyone loves a feel good movie too, right? I have my own opinions about that, but I wonder, what do you think?
