'365 Days': Breaking Down The Controversy


>> If you hit me again — >> What? You will kill me? >> The film is controversial because it glamorizes abuse It glamorizes physical abuse, emotional control and abuse, and it offers a template, especially for our younger minds, of what a relationship is and how certain parts of a relationship is okay or not okay

>> Why are you keeping me here? Answer me >> Many argue that the film romanticizes Stockholm syndrome, a psychological phenomenon in which a hostage forms feelings of affection for their captor That's exactly what happens when "365 Days'" female protagonist, Laura, concedes to mob boss Massimo's initially unwanted advances >> It's like, "Hey, I kidnapped you and you should be okay with it and, in fact, you should want to fall in love with me, marry me, and have my baby" It's this idea of retroactive consent

So, then it makes it all okay that everything that happened before is fine because eventually she decided to concede and give him what he wants? >> As controversial as that may be, Rotten Tomatoes editor Jacqueline Coley points out this narrative isn't new >> It really is in the eyes of the viewer This is not something we haven't seen before in media I mean, if you really want to go back to it, a film like "Beauty and the Beast," which has similar elements of seduction by abduction >> And despite "365 Days'" controversy, the film has propelled its male lead to social-media superstardom

>> Look no further than star Michele Morrone, who is the stuff that romance-novel covers are made of I mean, this man is a god He looks amazing, and it's clear to see why so many people are following him on Instagram >> The film's lead actor isn't its only appeal The outlandish story line has become an escape for viewers who have grown weary of quarantine

♪♪♪♪ >> I think right now, especially in the pandemic, a lot of people are thinking, "Oh, my gosh, I can't do the things that are happening in this movie I can't go to a party and hang out with my friends I can't just meet somebody and start to make out with them without fear of maybe getting covid myself" >> I like to call it the covid curve, where, because we're all at home and really sort of desperate for entertainment — theaters are shut down — certain films that maybe wouldn't have maybe broken through the zeitgeist into popular culture have this moment right now, and I think "365 Days" is a perfect example of that >> That being said, Jacqueline warns viewers "365 Days" is not for the faint of heart

>> Simply put, "365 Days" makes "50 Shades of Grey" look pg-13 This definitely pushes the envelope of what we considered erotic thriller versus what is kind of considered to be pornography onscreen >> Whoa
