came to the movie business late in life. For many years, he was a public-interest lawyer in New York, working for the city under Mayor Koch and Mayor Dinkins, and for a very small, very pious environmental law firm called Berle Kass & Case. It's difficult for him to explain -- or excuse -- his decision to forsake this work for the movie business, but he'd always loved movies more than anything else in the world, and hoped he could help make a few good ones.
Among his producing credits are Joe Gould's Secret, directed by Stanley Tucci and starring Ian Holm, Mr. Tucci, Susan Sarandon and Steve Martin; Where the Money Is, directed by Marek Kanievska and starring Paul Newman and Linda Fiorentino; and Sleepover, directed by Joe Nussbaum and starring Alexa Vega and Steve Carell.
Weinstock was born and raised in Palm Beach, Florida, and graduated from Harvard College and Harvard Law School. He is married to Martine Singer, Executive Director of Hollygrove, a nonprofit children's mental health and family services agency in Los Angeles. They have two children, Alexander (12) and Caroline (9).
