Pretty Baby

Pretty Baby () - IMDb

There was no hiding Brooke Shields from the frenzy surrounding the film Pretty Baby, in which she starred as year-old Violet, who lived with her prostitute mother in a Storyville brothel in New Orleans. But she was insulated from the controversy ignited by her nude scenes in the film. At the time, the precociously striking Shields had done modeling, commercials, and a couple of made-for-TV movies. Creative license aside, the film was based on a real place and inspired by the life and times of E. Bellocq, who photographed Storyville prostitutes; in the film, his character falls in love with Violet and sets up house with her.

40 Years Later, Brooke Shields Has No Regrets About Her Scandalous Star-Making Role

The screenplay was written by Polly Platt. The plot focuses on a year-old prostitute in the red-light district of New Orleans at the turn of the 20th century. The title of the film is inspired by the Tony Jackson song, " Pretty Baby ", which is used in the soundtrack. Although the film was mostly praised by critics, it caused significant controversy due to its depiction of child prostitution and the nude scenes of Brooke Shields, who was 12 years old.
Louis Malle's "Pretty Baby" is a pleasant surprise: After all the controversy and scandal surrounding its production, it turns out to be a good-hearted, good-looking, quietly elegiac movie. That's a coup for Malle, who sometimes seems to dare himself to find acceptable ways of filming unacceptable subjects. His subject this time is a twelve-year-old girl who is raised in the New Orleans brothel where her mother works.
