Wendi Deng Murdoch, who made Tuesday morning by slapping her husband’s assailant at the News Corporation hearings in London, hasn’t let her family legal drama affect her unduly. Last Wednesday, she attended a Cinema Society screening of the film she produced, Snow Flower and the Secret Fan, with guests including Nicole Kidman (the Australian pal of Mr. Murdoch whom former Page Six contributor Jared Paul Stern recently alleged “had a free pass” from News Corporation’s gossips), Mayor Michael Bloomberg and Harvey Weinstein. (Disclosure: Ivanka Trump Jewelry, an advertiser in The Observer, was the event’s sponsor.) She also attended a Saturday screening of the film in Southampton, along with Barbara Walters and Rudy Giuliani.

Cinema Society founder Andrew Saffir was distraught over Ms. Murdoch’s crisis, though he said it was never discussed while planning the event. “She’s been working on the film, as you know, for years. It’s so unfortunate that this came about when she was about to have her moment in the sun.”
