The Child in Film: Tears, Fears, and Fairy Tales - Rutgers Series in Childhood Studies (Hardback)Karen Lury (author)
- Not available
Karen Lury argues that the child as a liminal yet powerful agent has allowed filmmakers to play adventurously with cinema's formal conventions, with far-reaching consequences. She reveals how a child's relationship to time allows it to disturb conventional master-narratives and explores how the concern for and investment in the child actor conceals the reality of film acting and the skills of the child performer. She addresses the expression of child sexuality, and questions existing assumptions as to who children ""really are.
