You don’t need to be a film aficionado to have heard of the Weinstein brothers, Harvey and Bob. Their producer prominence should be common knowledge, but if their names are all you’ve heard, then just picture two comically fat business-type, cigar chomping, Hollywood hierarchs who are responsible for signing, sealing and delivering the motion pictures we love.
