Who stars in Cuties and how old are they?

Cuties tells the story of a girl who joins a "twerking dance squad".

The fictional French film tells the story of 11-year-old Amy, raised in a traditional Senegalese Muslim household, who sets her sights on joining a "twerking squad" at her school, as they compete to win a dance competition.

But many have called it uncomfortable viewing, as the girls in the cast are considered "too young" to be performing dances which are inappropriate for their age.

Here we take you through who is starring in the film, and how old they are in real life.

Fathia Youssouf as Amy

According to Fathia official Instagram page she is 14-years-old – in the film she plays an 11-year-old.
