Miramax boasts ‘Fine’ finale

Premiere is a bittersweet ending for distrib

Benefitting the Tribeca Film Institute, the Gotham preem of “Everybody’s Fine” Thursday also served as the swan song for the most recent incarnation of Miramax.

Exiting Miramax prexy Daniel Battsek called it a “bittersweet night.”

Pic’s lead and TFI co-chair Robert De Niro added, “I’m sorry it’s the last film.” He noted that Miramax founders Harvey and Bob Weinstein were Tribeca’s first tenants. “Miramax and Tribeca are synonymous with New York and the arts, which are a deep part of the city — to me, they are the heart.”

After the unspooling at Loews Lincoln Square, helmer Kirk Jones and his cast, including De Niro, Drew Barrymore, Kate Beckinsale and Sam Rockwell, headed for dinner at Tavern on the Green. The soiree also brought out the pic’s producers, Gianni Nunnari and Ted Field, as well as 2929’s Todd Wagner and Tribeca’s Geoffrey Gilmore.

After dinner, under the Tavern’s twinkling lights and holiday garland bedecked atrium, TFI co-chair Jane Rosenthal said this was the fifth annual premiere benefit for the institute, with the night’s proceeds aiding TFI programs such as teaching filmmaking to middle schoolers in the Bronx.

In the end, the event counted as a double swan song, given the Tavern is under new ownership and due to shutter. More than one guest pointed to the irony of the pic’s title, suggesting all was “not so ‘Fine.’ “
