Next step uncertain in Woody Allen allegations

Question of the Day

Is it still considered bad form to talk politics during a social gathering?

“I consider that a personal attack on my character. I consider it an insult to the criminal justice system of the state of Connecticut,” Maco said.

Even without further legal action, the public eye in which Allen and the Farrows operate will keep the matter in the headlines.

Ronan Farrow, the 26-year-old son of Allen and Mia Farrow (though she has said Frank Sinatra could be the father), will start hosting his own show on MSNBC on Feb. 24. He has supported Dylan Farrow, while their brother Moses, 36, has insisted Allen never molested her.

Allen’s latest film, “Blue Jasmine,” is nominated for three Academy Awards. Though Allen, long an award-show absentee, won’t be at the March 2 Oscars, he could win his fifth Oscar for the screenplay to “Blue Jasmine.” The film’s star, Cate Blanchett, is generally considered the front-runner for best actress.

It was the Golden Globes’ recent honoring of Allen for its Cecil B. DeMille lifetime achievement award that precipitated Dylan Farrow’s op-ed, which was largely aimed at the movie industry and fans of Allen for turning a blind eye to the director’s alleged molestation.

But if the endgame of the situation is unclear, Dylan Farrow has suggested she’s already accomplished her goal.

“If speaking out about my experience can help others stand up to their tormentors, it will be worth the pain and suffering my father continues to inflict on me,” Farrow said in a statement following Allen’s op-ed. “I won’t let the truth be buried and I won’t be silenced.”
