Cavorting in ‘Laurel Canyon’

Cholodenko discussed delay between pics

HOLLYWOOD — Lisa Cholodenko’s roots were showing last week. The native Angelino thanked the many “repeat customers” at the “Laurel Canyon” L.A. preem blocks away from the canyon depicted in the movie , then could barely get a few words in before another relative stopped by to congratulate her during the after-party at the Falcon nightclub.

Cholodenko drew upon her Ivy League schooling in her sophomore pic about the uptight son (Christian Bale) of a free-spirit record producer (Frances McDormand) who endures an extended stay at her Laurel Canyon home with his high-achiever fiancee (Kate Beckinsale). The helmer attributes some of the five-year delay between “High Art” and this pic to finding the right way to tell a “deceptively simple” story. Then the project got shuttled from October Films to USA and Focus Features, finally landing at Sony Pictures Classics.

Crowd included such indie thesps as Lili Taylor and Julie Delpy, producer Jeff Levy-Hinte, pic’s libidinous Alessandro Nivola, McDormand, Bale and his father, otherwise known at Gloria Steinem’s husband, David.
