Keira Knightley has become the center of attention in this new domestic violence advertisement, it is causing quite a stir it seems. It's directed by Joe Wright who recently won a BAFTA. It's good, one more thing that people are frightened to speak about is in the spotlight.
It's a shame it has gone this long for the media to take an aggressive stand point. of course Chris Brown brought things into the forefront recently too...how kind of him!!! Thankfully people are now opening their eyes. I think previous commercials are so meek and mild as opposed to now, thank God reality is setting in!
Feelings are mixed, someone I know called me on my usual reaction to violence. But you cannot liken this advert to the gratuitous violence I oppose... this is where it is okay to show some violence...because it is a reality for thousands of people. Others are being critical saying people only care because its Keira Knightly...it doesn't matter who she is, yes, she may be famous, but she is using that to get a message out there...good for her. Whatever works.
I hope it will make people take more notice, in Britain, people seem so concerned with keeping themselves to themselves as a whole, they don't intervene when they know they should...
