Amanda Knox attends ‘Gatsby’ screening in Washington

Amanda Knox may have had a grueling interview schedule this past week, but she gamely mingled with Washington media types Wednesday night.

The Seattle college student who spent four years in an Italian jail before her conviction in her roommate’s murder was overturned was a guest at a Time Warner screening of “The Great Gatsby” held at the MPAA’s offices near the White House. At her side: Bob Barnett, the Beltway superlawyer who represented her through negotiations for her $4 million book deal.

Now 25, Knox was poised and friendly as she was introduced around a room that included a mix of Time Warner luminaries (CNN’s John King, Gloria Borger, Jim Acosta) and political types (Heather Podesta, Mike Berman and Hilary Rosen).
