What Time Will ‘Cuties (Mignonnes)’ Be on Netflix?

The Netflix movie Cuties, or Mignonnes as it’s known by its French title, was critically acclaimed at Sundance Film Festival when it premiered in January, winning director Maïmouna Doucouré a directing award. Then last month, the Netflix film was blasted with accusations of sexualizing young girls and endorsing pedophilia, following the debut of the U.S poster and trailer from Netflix. Partially bolstered by followers of Qanon and other right-wing conspiracy theories, the accusations grew so loud that Doucouré faced death threats and was driven off of social media, and Netflix apologized “the inappropriate artwork” on Twitter.

It’s a shame because Cuties is a genuinely good movie, and it’s one that harshly critiques a society that pressures girls to sexualize themselves at far too young an age. The film revolves around a character named Amy, an 11-year-old daughter of Senegalese immigrants who lives in poverty with her mother and brother in Paris, and who tries to find her place in the world by joining a clique of mean girls in their quest to win a local dance competition. If you’d like to judge the film for yourself, here’s everything you need to know about when Cuties will be on Netflix.

WHEN WILL CUTIES BE ON NETFLIX?

Cuties is coming to Netflix on Wednesday, September 9. In other words: Tomorrow.

WHAT TIME WILL CUTIES COME OUT ON NETFLIX?

Netflix typically adds new titles at midnight Pacific Time on the morning of the film’s release. Therefore, Cuties will debut on Netflix on Wednesday, September 9 at 12 a.m. PT, or 3 a.m ET.

WHAT’S THE DEAL WITH THE CUTIES CONTROVERSY?

Cuties was accused of sexualizing young girls, based on the trailer and poster released by Netflix last month. Ironically, the movie is a commentary on how young girls are sexualized, and why that’s a bad thing. If you’d like to read a full explanation of the controversy from someone who’s actually seen the movie, I broke it down for you here.
