No-frills ‘Frontal’ bow full of star power

Weinstein calls pic a 'companion piece' to Soderbergh's debut

HOLLYWOOD — Much like the film it was promoting, the preem party for “Full Frontal” had an all-star cast on an indie budget.

The lack of frills at the packed L’Ermitage fete kept the focus on the roster of luminaries. Steven Soderbergh, Julia Roberts, George Clooney, Brad Pitt, Benicio Del Toro, Garry Shandling and David Duchovny were among the 200-plus partygoers.

Miramax’s Harvey Weinstein labeled “Full Frontal,” which was shot in 18 days on both film and digital video, a “companion piece” to Soderbergh’s debut, “sex, lies and videotape.” As to industry and commercial response to the helmer’s unorthodox follow-up to his recent hits, Weinstein said, “If a director of his talent can’t do challenging, experimental work, then we’re all in the wrong business.”

Also mingling were “Full Frontal” scribe Coleman Hough, producer Scott Kramer, cast members Blair Underwood and David Hyde Pierce, and guests Joe Roth, Brian Lourd and Darren Aronofsky.
