Whoa, all you little people missed one helluva Newport Beach Film Festival opening-night celebration Thursday night. After hanging out with the hangers-on at the premiere bash for Miranda—the story of a slippery con woman played by indie film goddess Christina Ricci—it was off with Miss Ricci on our arm to sip champagne outta her tiny pump at the top-secret, ultra-exclusive, post-post-post party, which was at . . . uh . . . that place that's . . . you know . . . next to the building by the . . . er . . . oh, hell. We've never met Miss Ricci, although we're very intimate with a pump that once belonged to her (don't ask). We made up the other shit to sound like a player as we introduced Part II of our coverage of the festival, which rolls through Thursday, April 10.
