‘Committed’ beliefs

Graham starrer preems in Westwood

HOLLYWOOD — Celebrating age-old notions of love and marriage, Miramax Films preemed “Committed” Wednesday night at Mann Festival in Westwood.

In a showdown at the after-party at Reata, the cowboy-themed restaurant in Beverly Hills, writer-director Lisa Krueger called the pic “a celebration of belief.”

She said she grounded the film’s relationships on the “daily challenge to believe in a thing enough to follow through with it. It’s about the daily leap of faith we make. Belief is a beautiful mistake. It’s not an idea to be tossed in a garbage can.”

Star Heather Graham said her role “portrays the end of a relationship in which one person wants to keep going and one doesn’t.”

Among those committed to the project in attendance were pic’s Sundance award-winning d.p. Tom Krueger, the helmer’s brother; stars Casey Affleck, Art Alexakis, Laurel Holloman, Mary Kay Place, Patricia Velasquez, Goran Visnjic and Luke Wilson; as well as guests Edward Burns, Sheryl Crow, Clea DuVall, Erik Palladino, Sarah Jane Potts and Owen Wilson.
