This is a pretty sticky situation for the 72-year-old maker of films who has been ditching this matter while living it up lavishly making movies and drinking wine. But now we're left with a dilemma: does our justice system brush this under the carpet? Would it be right for this man to not pay his dues to society? The bottom line is that he drugged and raped a 13-year-old, who is now in her mid-forties and has actually forgiven him.
I dunno. In one hand, there are way worst things happening in this world. But on the other hand, the man has been on the run and the only reason why he's getting any sympathy is because he's a famous director of films. We'll have to wait and see just what happens. Will his case of "hey, it happened over 30 years ago" hold any water? Isn't there a statue of limitation law or something?
I dunno. All I know is that he's in a bad spot and it's just a weird situation in general. While the answer is moralistically obvious (the man raped a 13-year-old child) how will his stardom weigh in on this? And should it?
