Film tells the story of a man desperate to succeed in a relationship, so he revisits his seven ex-girlfriends to find out what he did wrong.

Feature debut

Preemed at the 14th annual Fort Lauderdale Intl. Film Festival where it captured honors for the best world premiere, “Seven Girlfriends” is Lazarus’ feature helming debut.

Castle Hill will release “Seven Girlfriends” in April on a limited run in Florida before expanding nationally in June.

Impressive response

“We thought the response in Florida was quite impressive, and it was an audience pleaser. The film delivered a romantic comedy and had a great deal of potential to break into a theatrical release. … Hopefully we guessed right,” said Mel Maron, prexy of Castle Hill.

Castle Hill, headed by Maron and Julian Schlossberg, is a multifaceted company that distributes, produces and represents films and producers.

In management, Castle Hill reps Elia Kazan and Elaine May.
