Amazing Spider Man, currently in





theaters, which bills itself as "another
chapter" in the Marvel Comics super-

28, in the title role

Garfield was born in LA and raised
in London, where his paternal grand-
father, Samuel Garfinkel, grew up.
The son of Polish-born Jews; Garfinkel
changed his name after moving to the
U.S. Andrew's father, Richard, was
born here in 1950.
Andrew was 3 years old when his
parents moved to England in 1986;
they opened a small design busi-
ness there. Andrew's mother, Linda,
is English-born. It isn't clear whether
she is Jewish, but the actor has called
himself Jewish in interviews, saying

Parker, is Embetz Davidtz, 46, best
known for her bravura performance
as Helen Hirsch, a real-life Jewish
woman who worked as a maid in the
home of the concentration camp com-
mander in 1993's Schindler's List. In
2002, Davidtz married Jewish attor-
ney Jerry Sloane in what brief press
reports described as a Jewish wedding
(so she may have converted). She and
Sloane have two children.

Woody Does Roma

Opening Friday, July 6, is the new

Woody Allen flick, To Rome with

Love, a series of vignettes with a light
comic air. Allen, 76, acts in this one,
playing an American opera direc-
tor. One segment features Jesse

Eisenberg, 28, as an American archi-
tect living in Rome with his girlfriend

(Greta Gerwig).
Complications ensue
when he falls hard for
his girlfriend's best
friend (Ellen Page).
On Father's Day,
Allen's only bio-
logical child (with Mia
Woody Allen
Farrow), Ronan (ne
Satchel) Farrow, 24, tweeted, "Happy
father's day – or as they call it in my
family, happy brother-in-law's day."
Ronan was 5 when, in 1992, his
father left Mia for her daughter Soon-
Yi Previn, now 41. Allen is paying a
price for his behavior: the contempt
of a son who by any standard is an
extraordinary person. Ronan gradu-
ated from college at 15, studied law at
Yale and is now a prominent human
rights attorney. Last December, he
was named a Rhodes Scholar. E
