Roman Polanski: Wanted and Desired

What really happened on that infamous night that almost led to Polanski’s arrest for the rape of the 13-year-old Samantha Gailey and forced him to flee the US for Europe? Drawing on a wealth of archive material, including interviews with dozens of 70s Hollywood legends, Marina Zenovich digs her way through the piles of aphorisms, oversimplifications and spin scooped up by contemporary press reports to draw a sober and candid portrait of one of the most ambiguous figures of world cinema. A must-see for any movie fan, Roman Polanski: Wanted and Desired is destined to become a reference work for anyone studying the life and times of the famous director.
