I’ve heard it discussed before. For the record, it’s 17 and 24, which is definitely on the sketchy line but not egregious by any means. But I will say I knew a few people in high school who were dating people in their twenties and their parents didn’t seem to care. In many places the age of consent is 16.
Ultimately the movie isn’t really about that. The exact ages aren’t important so much as it is about a young man having a relationship with a slightly older young man. I think the audience is primarily people who like quality films. Weird that you think it’s targeting pedophiles or whatever.
