There is a movie that will hit the theaters this summer that has received accolades for being an "extraordinary contribution (to) entertainment that also enriches, probes the meaning of life and motivates love within the human family."
You're probably thinking, "What's the new Disney classic?" You aren't even close.
Wristcutters: A Love Story is far removed from Disney and is the antithesis to the promotion of life. The dark comedy depicts three twenty-somethings committing suicide. These individuals all meet in a purgatory-type setting specifically designed for those who take their life and a road trip ensues.
The whole premise of the movie is base and depraved. But I take even greater issue with its marketing campaign, targeted towards those most vulnerable to committing suicide. The third leading cause of death for 10-24 year olds is suicide. Horribly, the marketers of the movie plan totarget this age group
with posters showing people killing themselves. The images will depict people jumping off a bridge, electrocuting and hanging themselves.
