Allen v Farrow | Test Kitchen cooks Gimlet | JWong’s Happy ‘Niu’ Year
BL + BW discuss Allen v. Farrow, a new HBO documentary series reinvestigating claims of child sexual abuse against director Woody Allen, who has continuously denied the accusations since they were raised in 1992, amidst an ugly and highly public breakup with Mia Farrow. The series was made with the cooperation of Dylan Farrow, who at age 7 accused Allen, her adoptive father, of abuse.
