Back in July, it was reported that Dakota Fanning would go for Oscar gold in her upcoming movie Hounddog where she plays a motherless Elvis loving child of the 50’s. In an article published by Premiere magazine, more details of the movie have come out. There is still a rape scene, she promises to kiss a boy if he drops his pants, sleeps next to a naked man and forces two kids to strip and hug at gunpoint while she wraps a snake around them. But the scene causing the biggest uproar is the rape of Dakota Fanning by an older boy who tempts her with Elvis tickets. The director had this to say about it,
Exactly how I was going to film the rape scene was articulated quite specifically in the script, and her mother, her agent, and her teacher/child welfare worker were all present for the filming of the scene, which was carried out exactly as we discussed it. There was so much I had to hide [during filming]. I had to hid the fact that this girl is not naked. I had to hide the fact that there is not a boy on top of this girl having sex. One of the choices I made as a director is, I shot her face. I didn’t shoot flesh against flesh, his leg touching her leg; I shot her face because I wanted to capture a soul going through this experience, not a body. The assumption that [Dakota] was violated in order to give this performance denies her talent.
The protesters make it sound like she’s going to be raped live on camera. God it’s only pretend rape. I’d be more offended if she WASN’T raped. I think that came out wrong. No, no it didn’t. I bet Roman Polanski wishes he thought of this first.
