‘Tree’ grows on Zeitgeist

Cannes closer to hit U.S. screens this summer

Gotham-based distributor Zeitgeist Films has acquired all U.S. rights to “The Tree,” the Julie Bertuccelli pic that closed the 2010 Cannes Film Festival.

Charlotte Gainsbourg stars in the drama about a widowed mother of four dealing with the aftermath of her husband’s unexpected death. One young daughter, played by Morgana Davis, believes her father’s spirit lives on in a fig tree on the family property.

French writer-helmer Bertuccelli based the screenplay on Judy Pascoe’s novel “Our Father Who Art in the Tree.” Cast also includes Marton Csokas, Aden Young and Gillian Jones.

Les Films du Poisson and Taylor Media produced the English-language film. Zeitgeist’s Nancy Gerstman negotiated the U.S. distribution pact with Tanya Meissner of Memento Films.

Zeitgeist, which also released Bertuccelli’s “Since Otar Left,” aims to open “The Tree” theatrically in Gotham and L.A. this summer, followed by a national rollout.
