Film premiered at Telluride last year

Oscilloscope Laboratories has acquired North American rights to “Kisses,” scribe-helmer Lance Daly’s romantic comedy about Irish kids who run away from their drab housing project to check out the Dublin nightlife. Pic won the director prize at the Irish Film Awards and was the highest-grossing Irish pic of 2008.

The movie, shot in black-and-white and color, premiered at Telluride last year and won best film at the Galway Film Festival. “Kisses” is due out later this year.
