I've just waded through fifteen or twenty messages on why Hunter's character
was silent in "The Piano" and I just have one question:
Doesn't anyone see a problem with a film being made in this day and age that
says trading sex for vital stolen property isn't sexual abuse but a deeply
passionate, romantic affair?  Or I the only only one who sees it that way?
In "The Little Mermaid" Ariel trades her voice for an opportunity to go after
a goal (the guy).  But in "The Piano" Hunter's character has her voice
stolen, and she is basically whoring for piano keys.  Didn't that bother
Okay, perhaps that's only one question in the bigger scheme of things.
