An Open Letter from Dylan Farrow

From the NY Times:

What’s your favorite Woody Allen movie? Before you answer, you should know: when I was seven years old, Woody Allen took me by the hand and led me into a dim, closet-like attic on the second floor of our house. He told me to lay on my stomach and play with my brother’s electric train set. Then he sexually assaulted me. He talked to me while he did it, whispering that I was a good girl, that this was our secret, promising that we’d go to Paris and I’d be a star in his movies. I remember staring at that toy train, focusing on it as it traveled in its circle around the attic. To this day, I find it difficult to look at toy trains.

    This should surprise no one, and it’s truly shameful how Hollywood still buddies up to that scumbag. He should be castigated for what he’s done, not celebrated. This isn’t like Mel Gibson, who is generally only hurting himself and making himself look like a lunatic – this is one of the most horrible crimes that can be committed, and Woody Allen is around, walking free, still making movies and money.

    I’ve had him on my Dead Pool for years hoping one day I’d be right. I’m on Team Dylan here.

    Maybe Roman Polanski didn’t really have to run away and hide after all.

  4. BernardB,

    It is amazing how so many will automatically believe a single accusation without any proof. The more likely scenario is that Mia Farrow made Dylan believe Woody molested her.

    But if a single accusation is sufficient for some of you to want to see him in jail and banned from working ever again, what about others? What about Clinton? He had numerous accusations of rape and other sexual assaults. Should he be allowed to walk free and make money?
