‘Daltry’ limps through bow

Weinstein's final Miramax pic preems at Mann

The last Weinstein-era Miramax preem unspooled Tuesday night at the Mann Chinese 6 in Hollywood.

“Daltry Calhoun” filmed in Columbia, Tenn., mule capital of the world, and the screening began at a mule’s pace some 20 minutes after its scheduled start. Halfway through some viewers had fallen asleep while others texted friends on their cell phones.

The studio made amends with a classy after-party co-hosted by L.A. Confidential at the Roosevelt Hotel.

First-time writer/director Katrina Holden Bronson admitted that she was overwhelmed, and very nervous, about the premiere. “I’m running on adrenaline,” she said. “I’m so excited that it’s just canceling the exhaustion.”

Newcomer Sophie Traub felt similar freshman jitters while watching her perf. “The ticket that I was holding is all ripped up,” she said.

Also attending was co-star Juliette Lewis, executive producer Quentin Tarantino, Jack Black, Giovanni Ribisi, Scott Caan, and hip-hop artist RZA.
