Movies about Pedophilia

While the excellent Spotlight is just the latest film dealing with sex abuse scandals in the Catholic Church, Indictment: The McMartin Trial and The Hunt are two great movies about infamy, even though this concept is not always synonym of certainty of guilt. This list of movies about pedophilia develops the topic under various aspects, going from masterpieces of subtlety and ambiguity such as Lolita to more ferocious and disturbing examples like Happiness by Todd Solondz.

Pedophile priests: not only “Spotlight”

The 2016 Oscar-winning film is certainly not the only one that has denounced the shameful conduct of priests guilty of the most hateful of crimes: unfortunately the phenomenon has been, and is, widespread; it is sufficient to look at the titles that have dealt with such topics to understand it: The Club, referring to the most recent films, is a magnificent Argentinian drama about this issue, but Bad Education (by Almodóvar) and The Boys of St. Vincent had already touched the matter of pedophilia in the Church in Spain and in Ireland, respectively.

From the ‘60s to 2017

Even before the film based on the scandalous novel by Nabokov (who expressed himself in complimentary terms towards Kubrick’s adaptation) Never Take Sweets from a Stranger had already told the horror of pedophilia in a torrid story of abuses and covers. Then the issue was treated hovering between foul matters of sexual violence on children and films, in which implicated in sentimental-sexual matters are not little victims but underage adolescents: an example is Great Balls of Fire!, in which we discover that the legend of rock Jerry Lee Lewis got married with his 13-year-old cousin. In this sector titles of the last decade can be also included such as Hard Candy, Pretty Persuasion and Towelhead: they are all stories that play into that thin ridge that separates innocence from guilt and in which the turn of tables between victim and abuser is always lurking around. In this respect, of course, the already mentioned Lolita remains the essential reference point, as well as, to a lesser extent, the mediocre remake signed by Adrian Lyne in 1997. In the last few years the most significant films on this issue, besides the already mentioned ones, are two magnificent and angsty thrillers: The Captive, about the hunt for a group of ogres that uses the net to lure the little victims, and Big Bad Wolves, excellent and ignored Israeli film appreciated also by Quentin Tarantino. On the phenomenon, particularly present in south-east Asia, of arranged marriage with minors, film production is almost nonexistent. An important exception is I Am Nojoom, Age 10 and Divorced, film coming from Yemen (clandestinely filmed) based on the true story of a 12-year-old girl who rebels against her destiny of a wife of a much older man. Since this is a case of “institutionalized” pedophilia it represents an interesting and particular case.
