For months, filmmakers Kirby Dick and Amy Ziering had pair of Dream partners: Oprah Winfrey and Apple, who had committed to back their documentary about women who have accused hip-hop mogul Russell Simmons of sexual misconduct. Book for Sundance Film Festival and Apples New streaming platform, Film was prim to be next high-profile media moment of MeToo era. Then film's future was abruptly cast into doubt last week after Ms. Winfrey withdrew as executive producer and pulled it from Apple, citing creative differences with directors and suggesting that picture was being rushed to Sundance before I believed it was complete. But what preceded Ms. Winfreys announcement was more than just dispute over filmmaking. It involved intense campaign by Mr. Simmons and his supporters to get Ms. Winfrey to pull plug.

But it was clear that Ms. Winfrey, according to people involved in internal conversations around film, was struggling over what to do, especially since she had appeared supportive of movie before Mr. Simmons began pushing back against it. She was aware of message she might send by backing out, giving her reputation as role model for African-American women and as one of America's most trusted voices of moral authority.
