First Look chooses ‘Side’

First Look Pictures has acquired North American rights to the Academy Award-nominated foreign-lingo pic “The Other Side of Sunday,” Norway’s official Oscar entry for this year.

Helmed by Berit Nesheim, the pic stars Bjorn Sundquist, Hildegun Riise and 16-year-old newcomer Maia Theisen.

The film “captures the spirit of a young girl’s awakening and rebellion,” said First Look co-topper Robbie Little, “with the most poetic of imagery.”

The coming-of-age story set in a small Norwegian town is based on a 1959 novel by Reidum Nortvedt, and was produced by the Norwegian Broadcasting Corp. and the Swedish Film Institute.
