Quotes

Chapter one

Isaac Davis: Chapter One: He adored New York City. To him it was a metaphor for the decay of contemporary culture. The same lack of individual integrity that caused so many people to take the easy way out was rapidly turning the town of his dreams in – no, it’s gonna be too preachy, I mean, you know, let’s face it, I wanna sell some books here. 

So beautiful

Isaac Davis: “My analyst warned me, but you were so beautiful I got another analyst.”

Interstellar perversion

Isaac Davis: “I had a mad impulse to throw you down on the lunar surface and commit interstellar perversion.”

Manhattan as the evidence that Woody Allen sexually abused his 7 years old adoptive daughter

Many people, usually the nobody mob trial apologists and despicable MeTooWitchHunt groupies, are not ashamed to say that a 42 years old character dating a 17 years old teenager is the evidence that Woody Allen is a pedophile who sexually abused his 7 years old adoptive daughter, Dylan Farrow.

Hemingway said that Allen wanted to take her to Paris, but she said non, merci and that was that.

While Hemingway says Allen seemed inclined to pursue a romantic relationship, she valued his friendship. “In real life, Woody and I didn’t have a romantic relationship, but he did make me feel incredibly intelligent,” she said to W. “He took me to museums and concerts. He gave me his wisdom, and you can see that in the character.”Entertainment Weekly

“I had an amazing time making that film,” said Hemingway. “Woody Allen was wonderful to me. Did he like me? Yeah, he liked me. I didn’t have a relationship with him though. He respected that I didn’t want to have that.”Mediaite (the article is lying about Mariel Hemingway’s age, she was 17, not 16)
