Let's be fair
It has recently come to my attention that there appears to be some kind of law against making movies that don't have Dakota Fanning in them. She's only eleven years old and she's in five movies this year. She hols he own alongside some of the most talented actors alive (Sean Penn and Robert De Niro), she does voice work (Satsuki in the English dubbing of My Friend Totoro), and she has narrated an award-winning documentary. I'm not going to argue that she doesn't deserve to be in every movie made. Sure, she's the most talented child actor of her generation, maybe of all time. But, shouldn't she occasionally let someone else have a chance in the spotlight? Sharing is good--right?
