Pretty Baby

Oh my god guys, I just found out that Eva Ionesco is directing a movie about her childhood and her relationship with her mother Irina Ionesco! And the best part is: Isabelle Huppert is playing Irina! This is just too good. For those of you who are unfamiliar with their backstory, Irina is a French photographer who is best known for her portraits of Eva, many of which were taken when she was a child. Many of which could be classified as "erotic." Google her if you want to see them, I don't want this blog to get flagged. Obviously I don't support the exploitation of children for the sake of art a la Larry Rivers but I don't take issue with Irina's work. It isn't pornography, as many people claim, although I would probably feel differently if she was a man. I've always wanted to know how Eva felt about the whole situation, I guess we'll know soon enough.
