ALLEN v. FARROW is a documentary that took 3 1/2 years to research and create. It is told from the viewpoint of Mia Farrow and her daughter Dawn, who is now 35. The events occurred 30 years ago, but are now resurfacing for a closer look at who really was Woody Allen.
Dawn Farrow states in the beginning that “It has taken me a long time to reconcile that you can love someone and be afraid of them.”
ALLEN v. FARROW is a collection of memories, stories and media moments as told through the Farrow family, siblings, friends, actors, writers, and therapists. In retelling this way, we are able to still hear Woody’s side as well. He has continued to deny any sexual impropriety.
Add this with Woody’s love affair and later marriage to his stepdaughter Soon-yi Previn, and you have the makings of a scandal of outrageous proportions. And I hope I am not the only one who always noticed how Woody Allen made several films about an older man with a much younger woman. (Annie Hall and Manhattan are at the top of the list…oh la te da, la te da.)
This four part mini-series is dripping with innuendos and media mania. A fascinating topic for those who enjoy their soaps from the real world.
ALLEN v. FARROW is available to stream each Sunday on HBO MAX.
