People are raising eyebrows at Roman Polanski’s new movie.
Polanski’s first film in the #MeToo era is based on the true story of French-Jewish soldier Captain Alfred Dreyfus. The captain was falsely accused of spying for Germany in the 1890s.
Some people believe, however, the new film “J’Accuse” is more about Polanski than it is about Dreyfus.
The infamous filmmaker was found guilty in 1977 of having unlawful sex with a minor. He was originally charged with drugging and raping a 13-year-old girl.
Polanski ultimately fled to Paris after learning the judge planned on imprisoning him and he has been a fugitive of the U.S. ever since.
