The Harvey Weinstein scandal rages on. Days after The New York Times published its exposé of the now-former head of The Weinstein Company, alleging decades of sexual harassment and assault from multiple victims, The New Yorker published its own deep-dive exploration into the Hollywood mogul’s crimes, and it’s chilling. The biggest bombshell is also the most horrific: A new allegation that Weinstein raped three women, including actress Asia Argento and an aspiring actress named Lucia Evans.
The piece builds on the New York Times piece, but as journalist Ronan Farrow explains: “The story, however, is more complex, and there is more to know and to understand. In the course of a ten-month investigation, I was told by thirteen women that, between the nineteen-nineties and 2015, Weinstein sexually harassed or assaulted them, allegations that corroborate and overlap with the Times’s revelations, and also include far more serious claims.” Those claims include not just rape, »

I was standing outside the hotel room of a movie icon, unsure quite what I would find on the find on the other side of the door. It was the final day of the 2016 Cannes Film Festival, and after a week of frantic coordinating with various schedulers, I’d finally managed to land an interview with Jean-Pierre Léaud. He had just played the lead role in “The Death of Louis Xiv,” and still endured the impact of enacting his death for the cameras.
Léaud became one of international cinema’s most famous faces at 14, when he starred in Francois Truffaut’s seminal French New Wave debut “The 400 Blows.” As the adolescent Antoine Doinel, who spends much of the movie acting out at school and at home while witnessing the dissolution of his parents’ marriage, Léaud quickly became the defining face of angst-riddled youth.

He continues, “Small Crimes »
