‘Rhapsody’ in H’wood

Pic resonates universal themes from personal tale

Paramount Classics preemed “An American Rhapsody” on the Par lot Friday as part of the Hollywood Film Festival.

“One of the things I’ve discovered since I’ve been screening ‘An American Rhapsody,’ ” said Eva Gardos, who wrote and directed the film based on the story of her Hungarian immigrant family, “is that it seems to really hit close to a lot of people, no matter where they are from: San Fernando Valley, Ukraine or Korea.”

“Not that the same things happened to me, but I can relate to all of it,” agreed German-born star Nastassja Kinski.

Among those joining the cast at the Off Vine after-party were Paramount’s Rob Friedman, David Dinerstein and Ruth Vitale; producers Colleen Camp, Bonnie Timmermann and Andy Vajna; pic’s Tony Goldwyn; plus guests Thora Birch, Cameron Crowe, Courtney Love, Bill Paxton, Alexander Payne and John Woo.
