HBO’s new documentary series Allen v. Farrow takes a deep dive into the controversies behind the marriage of decorated Hollywood couple Director /Actor Woody Allen and Actress wife, Mia Farrow.

The four part documentary series directed by Kirby Dick and Amy Ziering, explores the headlines of sexual abuse allegations over the years involving Woody Allen and his 7 year old daughter Dylan with Mia Farrow, officially released February 21, 2021, on HBO.

Allen v. Farrow already touted to be on the same scale as other scandal infused documentaries like Surviving Jeffrey Epstein and Leaving Neverland etc. , will feature never before seen home videos, police records and interviews with family members, including the now all grown up 7 year old at the time, Dylan Farrow. Check out the official trailer below…

….for those who have managed to stay ignorant of this enduring family drama or, more likely, forgotten the details over time, something the documentary is heavily counting on. Back in 1992, Allen, then 57, admitted he was having an affair with Soon-Yi Previn, 21, the adopted daughter of his longterm partner, Farrow, with whom he had two adopted children – Dylan and Moses – and one biological child, Ronan (known then as Satchel). Several months after that, at the height of their viciously acrimonious break up, Farrow accused Allen of molesting Dylan, who was then seven, one afternoon while she was out of the house. Doctors examined Dylan and found no evidence of abuse. Allen was investigated by the Yale New Haven Hospital’s sexual abuse clinic which concluded: “It is our opinion that Dylan was not sexually molested by Mr Allen.” He was also investigated by New York State’s Department of Social Services, which wrote: “No credible evidence was found that the child named in this report has been abused or maltreated.” – The Guardian (United Kingdom)
