Film unit nabs rights to Kurosawa's drama

Regent Releasing has grabbed North American rights to Kiyoshi Kurosawa’s family drama “Tokyo Sonata.”

Pic won the Un Certain Regard jury prize at Cannes and had its North American preem at the Toronto Film Festival.

Pickup is the second for Regent from Toronto following its acquisition of Brillante Mendoza’s “Serbis.” Both films were repped by Fortissimo and will have their U.S. premieres at the upcoming New York Film Festival.
