It's been a long half year for Miramax. It all started with rumblings that Harvey and Bob Weinstein were interested in buying back Miramax -- the company they founded, named after their parents, sold to Disney, and then left when they parted ways with the Mouse House. Though they now have The Weinstein Company, the pull of Miriam and Max remained. But just as that news was bubbling, a big announcement hit: Miramax was closing, and the library was up for sale. What followed was a long road of ups and downs as businessmen with heaps of cash circled the company.
The Weinsteins were only one of the bidders, and though they tried to bounce back from every financial set-back on their quest to reunite with their first studio, it wasn't enough.
