Glaucon wrote:A betrayal to the family (presumably meaning her mother). That does conjure up the image of this being part of a long-standing and major family feud and that the accusing daughter feels that speaking up in support of Allen is showing disloyalty to the family, not just to her, the alleged victim. Which does point to her having a clear reason to persist in a false accusation and do so publicly, after all these years, consciously or not.
But still, we don't know. The same thing might be true for her brother.
Dylan is married and has children. She also has another sibling.
I don't know why her mother is the only member of her family that you even consider.
Her husband and children gain nothing from her seeking media attention with her renewed accusation, along with her mother. In fact, I'd guess that it probably won't do her children any good. In so far as they would be a part of it, it would be because they were made to be a part of it by mother and grandmother.
That other brother, Ronald Farrow, who has criticized Allen for his marriage to Soon-Yi as well, publicly, and who is on Mia Farrow's side, has not said anything about the child molestation accusation.
I still find the accusation somewhat hard to credit, since the event apparently too place AFTER Mia had discovered that Allen had been having it on with her 20 year old adopted daughter, had gotten furious, kicked him out of her grand home and while they were fighting over custody of Farrow and Allen's biological child, Satchel. Mia had staff working for her at that home. It seems a really odd time for Allen to pull something like this and an odd time for Farrow and her staff to let him out of their sight, wandering up to an attic and taking Dylan along without them knowing about it.
Odd. But not impossible. I don't know. Far to uncertain for people to go judging him, I feel.
Though, I COULD understand it if people didn't want to have Woody Allen be their babysitter.
