Dylan Farrow Criticizes Hollywood, Media for Ignoring Woody Allen Claims

REVIEW: Wonder Wheel goes around in some familiar circles for a Woody Allen movie

Movie Review – Wonder Wheel (2017)

In his piece from three years ago, Allen cited a report produced by Child Sexual Abuse Clinic of the Yale-New Haven Hospital, which wrote, in part, "It is our expert opinion that Dylan was not sexually abused by Mr. Allen". Farrow restated facts about the alleged abuse by her father that she said are public knowledge but that have been silenced by Allen's massive PR machine, which she said deploy money and power "to make the simple complicated, to massage the story".

"I just think he's very in touch with that side of himself".

Allen has repeatedly denied Farrow's allegations, writing in a 2014 piece published by The New York Times, "Of course, I did not molest Dylan".

"I try and cast actresses who have enormous range and enormous depth and intensity and I want to try and provide them with opportunities to exercise their great gifts", Allen says. Farrow went on to list several aspects of her claims: that uncomfortable "grooming" behavior by Allen was witness by family and friends; that Allen was in therapy "for his conduct towards [Farrow]" at the time the alleged assault took place; and that Allen refused to take a polygraph test.

WONDER WHEEL tells the story of four characters whose lives intertwine amid the hustle and bustle of the Coney Island amusement park in the 1950s: Ginny (Kate Winslet), a melancholy, emotionally volatile former actress now working as a waitress in a clam house; Humpty (Jim Belushi), Ginny's rough-hewn carousel operator husband; Mickey (Justin Timberlake), a handsome young lifeguard who dreams of becoming a playwright; and Carolina (Juno Temple), Humpty's long-estranged daughter, who is now hiding out from gangsters at her father's apartment.

"We are in the midst of a revolution", Farrow begins her op-ed, noting how many women have bravely spoken up about harassment and incidents of misconduct they've experienced and the consequences their abusers have faced. In an opinion column for the Los Angeles Times, Dylan Farrow, whom Allen and Mia Farrow adopted, questioned how the industry that finally toppled Harvey Weinstein and quickly turned on Louis C.K. continues to support Allen - and to silence his accuser. Allen has always denied all of the allegations. "I had an extraordinary working experience with both of those men, and that's the truth". "Although the culture seems to be shifting rapidly, my allegation is apparently still just too complicated, too hard, too 'dangerous, ' to use Lively's term, to confront", Farrow wrote. "I told the truth to the authorities then, and I have been telling it, unaltered, for more than 20 years".

Dylan writes, "It breaks my heart when women and men I admire work with Allen, then refuse to answer questions about it".
