Sia Facing Backlash Over New Film ‘Music’
SIA FACES CRITICISM OVER THE MOVIE SHE DIRECTED
(CNN) – Singer Sia is facing outrage over her Golden Globe nominated film.
Sia co-wrote and directed the movie “Music.”
Music is about a young woman with autism whose sister cares for her after her grandmother’s death.
Leaders in the autism community criticized the casting and acting in the film.
They also condemned a scene that shows the autistic character being restrained.
The community says restraining can be dangerous and even deadly for those with autism.
Sia apologized and plans to include a disclaimer in the movie about restraint.
She says the scenes will be removed “from all future printings.”
The film has received two Golden Globe nominations.
One for best motion picture, musical or comedy, the other for best actress in a musical or comedy.
