Ap­palled at al­le­ga­tions about We­in­stein

Evening Express (City Final) - - UK & Abroad -

IN RE­CENT years watch­ing the Os­cars and Baf­tas, I’ve been in awe of pro­ducer Har­vey We­in­stein al­ways hit­ting the nail on the head for fi­nanc­ing what turns out to be a block­buster of a pic­ture. The Gangs Of New York, Shake­speare In Love, The King’s Speech, as a Mi­ra­max founder – Pulp Fic­tion. But how are the mighty fallen. This Hol­ly­wood mogul has now been ac­cused of be­ing a sex­ual preda­tor, vic­tim­is­ing young star­lets. How ironic. It’s like a scene out of those black-and-white films about the cast­ing-couch, cel­lu­loid jun­gle in the 40s and 50s. How ap­palling to dis­cover such pow­er­ful men be­lieve they are also all-pow­er­ful over women. And how deeply omi­nous that most of the women had kept silent.
