EYES WIDE SHUT (1999): A Teen's Orgy with Japanese Businessmen

In Eyes Wide Shut (1999), Dr. Harford (Tom Cruise) went to the Rainbow costume boutique to purchase a cloak and mask to attend a masquerade (i.e., orgy). While perusing the racks, Milich, the owner, discovered his young daughter (Leelee Sobieski) having a three-way with two middle-aged Asian men. 

After Milich, understandably yet violently, confronted the Asian men, he was informed by one of the Asian men, "Are you crazy? We were invited here by the young lady." To which Milich replied, "Young lady. This is my daughter. Couldn't you see she's a child?" However, Milich exclaimed, "You little whore!" to his daughter before he tried to grab her to apply some corporal punishment. 

However, in a subsequent scene, Milich consented to the three-way between his "child" and the two Asian men.

Per the "Eyes Wide Shut, Part 1 (Erotic 90's, Part 20)" episode of the You Must Remember This podcast, Sobieski was 14 when her Eyes Wide Shut scenes were filmed, but she 16 when the film was released, which is when she appeared of the August 1999 cover of Details magazine with the lead article line READY OR NOT: LEELEE SOBIESKI GROWS UP FAST IN EYES WIDE SHUT

Understandably, Milich didn't believe the Asian ephebophile's claims, but their claims are  realistic, because contrary to popular belief, it is not uncommon for age-discrepant relationships to be initiated by teens. However, ephebophiles need to be aware of the age-of-consent laws in their respective states before consenting to the advances of alluring nymphets.

Lastly, Eyes Wide Shut was nominated for a César Award for Best Foreign Film, and the erotic drama is based on Arthur Schnitzler's 1926 novella Dream Story.
