How Will DSK Sex Scandal Play As A Movie?

Just as lawyers prepare a New York civil suit against Dominique Strauss-Kahn over the alleged attempted rape of New York hotel worker, the arts world is trying to make sense of France’s biggest political sex scandal in an array of films, plays and bestselling books. Neither the script nor title of a much-talked-about DSK feature film by “Bad Lieutenant” director Abel Ferrara has been finalized, but shooting is about to begin in New York, Washington and Paris, with Isabella Adjani (pictured) to play DSK’s wife, Anne Sinclair. (I know, I know: Adjani’s face is looking pretty “enhanced” these days, isn’t it?) DSK, a one-time presidential hopeful and head of the International Monetary Fund, has been a political pariah in France since his arrest in New York last year over the alleged attempted rape of an immigrant hotel worker, Nafissatou Diallo. Those charges were dropped, but DSK faces other legal headaches, in the U.S. and in France.
