PROUD PARENTS: You can’t get any more Hollywood than the premiere of a studio pic at the Mann Chinese Theater. That’s what Caro, a New Zealand indie filmmaker, thought as she escorted her parents to the preem. “They think I’m flash!” said the “Whale Rider” helmer, who makes her U.S. directing debut with the pic.

‘TIS THE SEASON: Buzz is already mounting that Theron, as well as co-stars Frances McDormand and Thomas Curtis, could secure Oscar noms for their performances.

“You don’t want to jinx it,” said Warner’s Alan Horn. “But I think Charlize gave one of the finest performances of her career. She’s in every frame.”
