I wasn’t going to comment on this story for obvious reasons, but since all these Polanski apologists are surfacing everywhere I just wanted to say: He drugged and raped a 13-year-old girl and then skipped town. Sorry, there’s no excusing that, ever.
I agree. Polanski’s artistic and film-making abilities have no relevance here. Read the court transcript. She said no, he continued. That’s rape. Also, while the victim has forgiven him, has he ever apologized?
