Strand Releasing has acquired U.S. rights to Sam Garbarski’s “Irina Palm,” starring Marianne Faithful and Miki Manojilovic, from Pyramide International.
Deal was concluded Thursday on the first day of the Cannes Film Festival. Strand is planning a release late this year.
Film centers on a widower, anxious to raise money for her grandson’s medication, who accepts a job from the charming manager of a sex club and finds that her clandestine existence begins to raise the suspicions of her son and her inquisitive neighbors alike.
Pic’s been sold to over 30 territories and premiered at this year’s Berlin International Film Festival, where it was awarded “The Berliner Morgenpost” Readers’ Jury Prize.
