This is correct.
Goldstar, your logline sucks. It's not okay, it sucks.
Please re-read my post at Wordplay and my previous post here. I haven't checked to see if you've posted your logline anywhere else.
Don't bother with querying Miramax or New Line - they want a producer already on board usually. They are studio types that are most likely going to want a producer to schlepp it in to them or will only take subs from agents.
Query producers with a battle tested, bullet proof query letter after it has been thoroughly trashed by people who have done it before. Learn to pitch the query on the phone.
