Nobody will read this, most likely just a few family or friends. Google "dylan farrows open letter" to figure out what I'm rambling about.
I remember the entire Mia Farrow vs. Woody Allen saga that went down. Partially because I am a "People" magazine reader and mostly because at the time my husband (not my husband now) had been accused of molesting his prior step daughter. Another long story for a different post, that may or may not get me sued...what the hell.
Here's my thoughts in summary:
Woody Allen: most likely not a classic pedophile because if he was there would be more than one little girl coming forward, at least you would think so.
Mia Farrow: yes of course she was pissed when they broke up, he took up with her adopted child, but most likely didn't plant the whole abuse idea because if she was out to destroy the man, she has other daughters she could have included in the complaint.
What I think: Woody is a arteest...yes I'm being facetious. With wealth and fame come invincibility. Something that happened in that attic room frightened that little girl. Whatever it was has stuck with her for years. Why did she just now right the open letter? Easy...she finally has felt comfortable enough to say what she feels.
Should we believe her without a doubt..no, but it's not my place to plant guilt or doubt. What is fair is that Dylan Farrow has written a letter, knowing that it would bring attention to her claim. She isn't asking for money, she's asking for people to recognize that the person who makes films we enjoy maybe has done something that was terrible and harmful.
My opinion is that at the very least the world should give as much credence to what Dylan has to say, as to what Woody has to say. You can decide which rings a louder bell of truth.
