    How stupid does a person have to be to not notice this shot is a commentary on this?

    Umm…. what are you getting at? I know the lead guy is playing a high schooler 🤡

    And the movie is commenting on coming of age movies and their use of older actors in teenage parts? That shot is LITERALLY a scene of a movie audition

    I know? I’m talking about the age gap between the two leads and judging from this trailer, it seems like they’re romantically involved in the movie, it’s very problematic and Cooper Hoffman filmed this movie when he was 17.

    I need to come here every now and then to be reminded that people really don’t know how to READ films…

    Alana Haim is nearly 30 and Cooper Hoffman just turned 18. Remember when people said CMBYN a pedophile movie or when the same people bullied 27 year old Ben platt for playing a teenager in DEH (not a fan of the movie BTW)? Let’s wait and watch for their hypocrisy.

    I think the call me by your name meme is about the character’s ages. Not helped by how old armie hammer looks compared to chalamet

    A very annoying young man, who loves cinema. 🙂

    Licorice Pizza will be one of 10 films nominated for an Oscar for best picture, but will not win the award.

    Actually, people complained about Malcolm and Marie last year due to the 12-year difference between Zendaya and JD Washington.

    Anyway, all these age controversies (CMBYN, M&M and now Licorice Pizza) are stupid.

    PTA is getting very personal here.

    This is based on Gary Goetzman’s childhood, producer and former child actor from Jonathan Demme (PTA’s mentor) movies.

    He’s directed a few video clips from Alana Haim, and her mother was his teacher.

    Phillip Seymour Hoffman was also his longtime friend.

    Pedophilia and abuse can only be committed by a man. I know the laws very well and if an adult woman sleeps with a minor this is love and should be respected. There are many teachers who have been spared from jail because of this legal interpretation. So it’s healthy that it has the same interpretation in the film.

    I wonder why PTA doesn’t give his films a festival run anymore, it’s not like his films are box office hits and his name alone an award magnet. He did the same with Phantom Thread, but that was DDL’s last film and it did poorly in the box office.

    My thoughts on thr trailer:

    (1) may be too weird for Academy
    (2) can get nominated for picture, screenplay etc but definitely can’t win picture
    (3) Sean Penn seemed more interesting to me than Bradley Cooper

    Goetzman is also VERY influential inside the PGA.

    People are underestimating how many of these factors will help this film go all the way…
