The troubling part is the plot description: “On a small town college campus, a philosophy professor in existential crisis gives his life new purpose when he enters into a relationship with his student.” (An email and phone call to Allen’s publicist received no response.) had the middle-aged auteur’s alter ego dating a teenager played by Mariel Hemingway.
(The on-set make-out session with Allen was reportedly the 16-year-old actress’s first kiss.) And the new movie’s neurotic philosopher sounds like the latest in a long line of Allen stand-ins, from Alvy Singer in , that Allen molested her when she was seven, this suggestion that Allen is defiantly returning to the topic of older men seducing or being seduced by much younger women feels stunning.
For those who value intellect in romantic partners, professors can be extremely alluring.
They're often older, but sometimes only by a decade or so, meaning that physical attraction is often a possibility right from the start.
Here is a page that exists on IMDb, one that suggests that Woody Allen’s next movie is in the works for 2015.
