If you have ever enjoyed Woody Allen’s films this HBO series is hard to watch. It’s worth bearing in mind that its terribly sad, much-contested story is told almost entirely from one side, charting the decades-long battle arising from allegations (which Allen denies) that he abused his and Mia Farrow’s adopted daughter Dylan. He later began a relationship with Farrow’s daughter Soon-Yi that continues to this day. 

Allen’s perspective is presented via occasional clips from the audiobook of his autobiography, otherwise the story comes from Farrow, her allies and from a wealth of (mostly) idyllic-looking home movies that now feel more than a little tainted. 


An exploration of the Woody Allen sexual abuse allegation. In the first edition, Mia Farrow recounts her storied relationship with Woody Allen, once a beloved father figure to her seven children. While their adopted daughter Dylan speaks about the escalating discomfort she felt under the intensity of Woody's attention, which was a growing concern for Mia.
