Each of these sexual assault stories is tough to expunge; they don’t blend together so much as affix themselves to a timeline in your heart. But as they accumulate, you do wonder whether, after their experiences with Mr. Weinstein, women like Asia Argento, Gwyneth Paltrow, Ashley Judd and Mira Sorvino and other less famous actresses thought differently about acting, or whether people who make casting decisions thought differently about them, because of rumors or deals with Mr. Weinstein.

In the middle of Mr. Farrow’s story, the actress Rosie Perez says this about her friend Ms. Sciorra: “She was riding high, and then she started acting weird and getting reclusive. It made no sense. Why did this woman, who was so talented, and riding so high, doing hit after hit, then all of a sudden fall off the map? It hurts me as a fellow actress to see her career not flourish the way it should have.”
