‘Untouchable’ charts the rise and fall of Harvey Weinstein
PARK CITY, Utah (AP) — Harvey Weinstein's name was intrinsically linked to the Sundance Film Festival for years, which makes it somewhat fitting that 14 months after his career began to unravel the festival played host to the world premiere of a documentary about his rise and fall.
"I'm so happy it's at Sundance," said "Untouchable" director Ursula Macfarlane, whose film debuted Friday night in Park City. "It's the perfect place for a film about Harvey."
LONDON (AP) — Harvey Weinstein's former British assistant said Wednesday that a gag order she had to sign when she left his film company was "morally lacking in every way" and failed to stop the movie producer's harassment and abuse of women.
Zelda Perkins quit Weinstein's firm Miramax in 1998 along with a colleague who accused the movie mogul of trying to rape her. Each received a 125,000-pound ($177,000) settlement and signed a non-disclosure agreement.
