IFC Films announced today from the 2012 New York Film Festival that The company is acquiring all North and Latin American rights to director Noah Baumbach's FRANCES HA. Baumbach wrote the screenplay with Greta Gerwig who stars in the film. Mickey Sumner, Adam Driver and Michael Zegen co-star. Baumbach, Lila Yacoub, Scott Rudin, and Rodrigo Teixeira produced the picture, with Fernando Loureiro and Lourenço Sant' Anna executive producing for RT Features. FRANCES HA made its world premiere at the 2012 Telluride Film Festival and also played at the Toronto International Film Festival earlier this month.
Frances (Gerwig) lives in New York, but she doesn't really have an apartment. Frances is an apprentice for a dance company, but she's not really a dancer. Frances has a best friend named Sophie, but they aren't really speaking anymore. Frances throws herself headlong into her dreams, even as their possible reality dwindles. Frances wants so much more than she has but lives her life with unaccountable joy and lightness. FRANCES HA is a modern comic fable that explores New York, friendship, class, ambition, failure, and redemption.
Jonathan Sehring, President of Sundance Selects/IFC Films, said: "Our entire team fell in love with FRANCES HA in Toronto. It's sharp and funny and it also has an exhilarating energy and love for its characters and for New York City. Greta Gerwig's performance is a revelation. We really look forward to working with Noah, Greta and the film's producers to make this a great success."
The deal for FRANCES HA was negotiated by Arianna Bocco, Senior Vice President of Acquisitions & Productions for Sundance Selects/IFC Films with UTA on behalf of the filmmakers and RT.
IFC Films is a sister label to IFC Midnight and Sundance Selects, and is owned and operated by AMC Networks Inc.
