LOS ANGELES — “My Son Hunter” is not your prototypical Hollywood movie — and it did not get a typical Hollywood premiere.
The new film distributed by the conservative media empire Breitbart and released Tuesday had its first public viewing last Wednesday night at a small screening room inside a nondescript office building on South Sepulveda Boulevard, Los Angeles.
It was miles away from Tinseltown’s red carpets, literally and figuratively. In place of cocktails and expensive hors d’oeuvres were bottled water and pre-bagged “Corn Pop,” a wink at a story Joe Biden has often told about this youth in Delaware intermingling with the city’s Black population. “Corn Pop” was a real person, but sometimes, the president recounts it in ways that have drawn mockery.
