This book once again puts the work of Woody Allen under academic scrutiny. Considering the current climate of the treatment of women in Hollywood, following the Harvey Weinstein case, many male celebrities are being brought forward on charges of sexual harassment, including Woody Allen, who has once again appeared in the press in relation to historic charges of molestation.
Well within a #MeToo era, this edited volume brings together researchers to consider how women are represented in the broader sphere of Hollywood cinema, to consider the notion of the male perspective on writing women, and to explore the various approaches to relationships with and between women on screen. Through the lens of the work of Woody Allen, in exploring the problematic consideration of the autobiographical nature of filmmaking, this book will explore the role and representation of women both in the work of Woody Allen considering his films, plays, stand-up comedy and other writings. With more recent industrial attention towards the production of his work (notably Amazon Studios refusing to distribute a completed film) the work of Woody Allen is markedly problematic, but this of course demands interrogation, demonstrating that the time to write this book is now.
