Controversial HBO documentary series Allen v. Farrow is now available to watch in Ireland

It has quickly become one of the most-talked-about series since it debuted in the US a few weeks ago.

Academy-Award nominated directors Amy Ziering and Kirby Dick have tackled some very controversial topics in the past with their previous documentaries, including The Invisible War (the epidemic of rape of soldiers within the US military), The Hunting Ground (the lengths that educational institutions will go to cover up crimes on their campuses), and Twist of Faith (sexual abuse within the Catholic church).

Their trend for tackling hot-topic issues continues with Allen v. Farrow, their new four-part documentary series which aired on HBO across four weeks and has now been made available to watch in its entirety in Ireland as of today (Monday, 15 March).

The official synopsis of the docu-series is as follows: A look behind the years of sensational headlines to reveal the private story of the accusation of sexual abuse against Woody Allen involving his 7-year-old daughter with Mia Farrow.

Since debuting Stateside, the docu-series has received some incredible reviews:

TV Guide - "Riveting and far-reaching. ... Allen v. Farrow goes beyond the headlines, to explore why it is that we're so reluctant to accept the worst about our pop culture heroes."

Los Angeles Times - "HBO’s powerful four-part series “Allen v. Farrow,” from investigative filmmakers Kirby Dick and Amy Ziering, is a comprehensive, convincing and ultimately devastating documentary that threatens to burn what’s left of his career and legacy to the ground."

Entertainment Weekly - "What makes Allen v. Farrow all the more devastating is that it isn't packed with explosive revelations - it just puts all the evidence together and lays it at our feet."

The A.V. Club - "Ultimately, it’s an intriguing docu-series that will interest those invested in the case to re-examine it through the lens of four compelling, often uncomfortable episodes."
