Washington D.C. [USA], Jan 04 (ANI): Seems like fans of American actor Amandla Stenberg are not happy about her latest film.
Written and directed by Belle and 'A United Kingdom' director Amma Asante, the movie is a war romance drama about an interracial teenager in Nazi Germany who falls in love with a member of the Hitler Youth. It was released in September.
While some people praised the movie and Stenberg's performance, others ripped it apart online over the film's storyline.
"Nazi's and those who love them are not deserving of being humanised/sanitised. They don't need to be immortalised by the film. Their love is not revolutionary or beautiful!" one Twitter user argued.
"Dear Amandla, Fire your agent. A Nazi love story? Really girl?," another critic wrote online.
"Welp! 2 hours of my life I'll never get back. Cheers to this absolute dumpster fire of a movie," a comment read.
"Amma Asante needs to explain this one because I don't understand," a viewer tweeted. "The second half of the movie had a lot of good emotional moments since they were literally in a labor camp. But the entire premise is extremely problematic."
Someone pointed out a particular scene in the film in which Stenberg's character refers to jazz music as "n---a music." "The QUESTIONS....THAT I HAVE...FOR AMMA ASANTE, GORL," a Twitter user retorted. (ANI)
