Boris Yellnikoff: “Love, despite what they tell you, does not conquer all, nor does it even usually last. In the end the romantic aspirations of our youth are reduced to, whatever works.”

Evan Rachel Woods and Larry David

According to Wikipedia (37), Woods is a despicable mob trial apologist who doesn’t believe in facts and doesn’t respect due process (Woody Allen has been investigated for months by two independent teams of experts on sexual abuse and cleared two times and Moses Farrow who was present on August 4, 1992, cleared him one more time): “That was years before I read Dylan’s letter. Unfortunately, I can’t say that I would again.”
