Roman Polanski: Wanted and Desired

A documentary about the circumstances that led the director of Rosemary’s Baby and Chinatown to flee the U.S. in 1978, after pleading guilty to illegal sex with a 13-year-old girl, has been released very quietly.

In an odd reverse marketing scheme, the film - which has already been purchased by HBO Entertainment but is obligated to hold screenings in New York and L.A. to qualify for Oscar nominations - is holding very quiet showings at inconvenient times and locations and minimal publicity to ensure the film still has an eager audience when it airs on HBO in June.
