‘Smoke’ filled pic premiere

Hunter exhibits 'masterly skills' as after-party hostess

Though director Jane Campion was unable to attend Tuesday’s preem of Miramax’s “Holy Smoke” at the Laemmle Music Hall, she had allies praising the film in her absence.

Star Kate Winslet called the film “incredibly bold and brave and confronting in the sense that it deals with things movies on a whole don’t deal with.”

Holly Hunter, who hosted the after-party at L’Ermitage said he female lead is “another one of Jane Campion’s warriors — a woman who feels imprisoned and uses her masterly skills to find a way out.”

Among those on hand to see those masterly skills themselves were Mike Figgis, Saffron Burrows, Bruce Davison, Mimi Rogers, Robert Forster and Martin Landau.
