Thank you for reading the news about Duffy slams '365 Days' for romanticising kidnaping and now with the details
Aden - Yasmine El Tohamy - Singer Duffy has slammed erotic drama 365 Days for glamorising the "brutal reality of sex trafficking, kidnapping and rape".
The singer has reportedly penned an open letter to Netflix CEO Reed Hastings, and condemned the platform for its decision to stream the controversial film, terming it as an "irresponsible" move, reports hollywoodreporter.com.
The plot of the Polish film is about a powerful man holding a young woman captive, giving her one year to fall in love with him. Following some reluctance, the woman ends up falling in love with him, and decides to stay with him. The film has a 0 percent rating on Rotten Tomatoes.
"This should not be anyone's idea of entertainment, nor should it be described as such, or be commercialised in this manner," she wrote in the letter, which has been obtained by numerous media outlets, including The Sun.
The singer said that while she did not intend to call out Netflix, she felt the need to because of her experiences.
"I just can't imagine how Netflix could overlook how careless, insensitive and dangerous this is. It has even prompted some young women, recently, to jovially ask Michele Morrone, the lead actor in the film, to kidnap them," she added.
She went on to call the streaming giant hypocritical. She urged Hastings to use Netflix's resources and filmmakers to produce and stream "content that portrays the truth of the harsh and desperate reality of what 365 Days has sought to turn into a work of casual entertainment".
The singer concluded the letter by urging those who watched the movie to "reflect on the reality of kidnapping and trafficking, of force and sexual exploitation", instead of "eroticises kidnapping and distorts sexual violence and trafficking as a 'sexy' movie".
"365 Days has brought great hurt to those who have endured the pains and horrors that this film glamorises, for entertainment and for dollars. What I and others who know these injustices need is the exact opposite - a narrative of truth, hope and to be given a voice," she said.
Earlier this year, Duffy opened up about her own harrowing experience of being raped, drugged and held captive for weeks in the past.
