“What’s your favorite Woody Allen movie?” asks Dylan Farrow in today’s New York Times. That opening question is followed immediately by Farrow’s account of repeated sexual abuse at the age of 7 at the hands of Allen.
Ronan Farrow recently brought the allegations back into the light as Allen was being lauded with the Cecil B. DeMille Award at the Golden Globes, tweeting:
Dylan Farrow has made the charges before, but her open letter in the New York Times is forcing the public at last to confront some very ugly charges.
Dylan Farrow calls out by name those who have worked most recently with Allen:
What if it had been your child, Cate Blanchett? Louis CK? Alec Baldwin? What if it had been you, Emma Stone? Or you, Scarlett Johansson? You knew me when I was a little girl, Diane Keaton. Have you forgotten me?
Woody Allen is a living testament to the way our society fails the survivors of sexual assault and abuse.
