Age Gap: Forbidden Romance

These films all fall under the complex and controversial subject of age gap relationships, whether it's the main focus of the story or a mere side note.

NOTE: Some films contain the sexualization of minors, pedophilia and criminal acts of sexual abuse or sex with a minor. None of the aforementioned actions with minors and/or non-consenting adults is ever okay.

TW: Sexual abuse, depression, self-harm, suicide

Also, fuck you Harvey Weinstein and all you other Hollywood rape bros!
