Pic received the Sundance special jury award.
NEW YORK — “In the Bedroom,” the debut feature from actor-turned-director Todd Field, will open the 23rd Annual IFP Market on Sept. 30 in New York.
A co-production of Good Machine International and GreeneStreet films, pic was acquired by Miramax after screening in competition at Sundance 2000. Stars Tom Wilkinson and Sissy Spacek won a special jury prize at the fest for their performance as a small-town Maine couple whose only child (Nick Stahl) gets involved in a tragic love affair with a troubled young mother (Marisa Tomei).
Script was adapted by Field and scribe Robert Festinger from a short story by Andre Dubus.
The 23rd IFP market will run September 30-October 5 at the Angelika Film Center and neighboring locations.
