Written by: FFT Webmaster | October 28th, 2011

Indie distributor Magnolia Pictures has acquired all U.S. distribution rights to ANGELS CREST, which was a sleeper hit following its world premiere at this year’s Tribeca Film Festival. The film, directed by Gaby Dellal, features an all-star cast including Jeremy Piven, Kate Walsh, Thomas Dekker, Lynn Collins, Mira Sorvino and Elizabeth McGovern.  The film tells the story of a small rural community during the first snow of winter, when a young boy mysteriously disappears from his father’s truck.  The inhabitants of Angels Crest confront what this tragic event means to them, and have to deal with their own concepts of right and wrong. The ensemble drama was adapted by Catherine Trieschmann and is based on Leslie Schwartz’s novel.  Magnolia plans a November 25th VOD launch and a December 30th theatrical release for the film.
