It seems that Big Hollywood have closed ranks to defend a child molester. It is refreshing however that the French and the Americans are seeing eye to eye when it comes to making sure that talented movie directors that rape 13 year olds after drugging them serve prison time.
The mood was even more hostile in blogs and e-mails to newspapers and news magazines. Of the 30,000 participants in an online poll by the French daily Le Figaro, more than 70 percent said Mr. Polanski, 76, should face justice. And in the magazine Le Point, more than 400 letter writers were almost universal in their disdain for Mr. Polanski.
