bonjour j`ai vue le film cette semaine sur M6 tres touchant,et tres intÃ©rressant, je ne comprend pas qu`une artiste noir tres connu et respectÃ© de son public, devait passer par les coullisses, uriner dans un goblet, ne pas s`approcher de la piscine, restÃ© dans sa chambre pour ne pas choquer les clients, et pourtant ils allaient l`applaudir aprÃ¨s ces spectacles, je ne comprend pas cette rÃ©action heureusement que tous a changer. Mais quelle fin trajique un peu comme marylin elles sont partie trop jeunes elles auraient continuer une belle carriÃ¨re, en tout cas dorothy c`est battue pour se faire aimer et obtenir ce quelle voulait et je dit bravo. A bientot peut Ãªtre cecile
