IFC Films has acquired all North American rights to writer-director Michael Walker’s comedy “Price Check,” starring Parker Posey and Eric Mabius. IFC Films will release “Price Check” on VOD on Oct. 11 and theatrically on Nov. 16.
Dolly Hall produced the pic, which made its world premiere at the 2012 Sundance Film Festival. Cheyenne Jackson and Josh Pais co-star alongside Annie Parisse and Edward Herrmann.
Mabius plays a family man drowning in debt who takes a job in the pricing department of a middling supermarket chain. Everything changes when he gets a new boss (Posey), who steers him towards the executive track, which excites him but keeps him away from his family. At the same time, they become enamored with one another, creating tension in the workplace and at home.
“Michael Walker has made a thoughtful and impressive film featuring a return to the screen by Parker Posey that is a gift to her fans and one of her most hilarious, nuanced performances. We’re also happy to be working with our long time friend Dolly Hall,” said Sundance Selects/IFC Films prexy Jonathan Sehring.
Deal was negotiated by Arianna Bocco for Sundance Selects/IFC Films with Josh Braun at Submarine Entertainment on behalf of the filmmakers.
