Zola

Twitter. This movie is loosely based on a 2015 twitter thread written by a kid who became victim of sex trafficking. It’s a smart film, cleverly directed with a talented cast but it falls short in not addressing that sex trafficking affects over 4.5 million victims, 100 calls for help a day. The film is entertaining and surprising unfortunately making it enjoyable. I say unfortunately as I anticipate a lot of kids seeing it and not seeing how truly disturbing it is or how easily it could have been them in the film. I can only hope that when it comes out it’s modified to teach and raise alarm. The gravity and weight are not heavy enough in the film. As for the rating… more like friends night with discussion to be held after.
