Catch and Kill

Ronan Farrow

Overview

In 2017, Ronan Farrow's investigation into Hollywood revealed a story of sexual predation, unaccountable power, and immeasurable influence. Despite explicit and veiled threats, surveillance by ex-Mossad agents, and damage to his career, Farrow persists — committed to exposing the truth.

The son of actress Mia Farrow and filmmaker Woody Allen, Farrow is an investigative journalist for the New Yorker. His reporting has appeared on NBC News, MSNBC, The Wall Street Journal, and The Washington Post. Along with a Pulitzer, the author is the recipient of the George Polk Award, the National Magazine Award and was named one of Time magazine's 100 Most Influential People following his reporting on Harvey Weinstein.

In Catch and Kill, Farrow details the patterns of sexual predations by Hollywood exec Harvey Weinstein and the network of lawyers, investigators, journalists, and public relations specialists he employed to intimidate, shame, and silence his accusers.

Favorite Quote

"Several reporters said they'd fielded efforts to intimidate them. One magazine writer who broke a significant story about Weinstein showed me the messages and played me the voicemails that eventually graduated to explicit threats of harm to him and his family."
