MPI picks up ‘Little White Lies’

Canet's French dramedy set for U.S. release

MPI Media Group has acquired all North American rights to Guillaume Canet’s hit dramedy “Little White Lies,” starring Marion Cotillard and Jean Dujardin.

French pic will be released theatrically in the first quarter, with DVD and VOD releases to follow.

Canet wrote and directed the film, which follows a group of longtime friends who reunite for their annual beach vacation despite a traumatic accident involving one of their own. During their getaway, they all make discoveries about each other and are finally forced to own up to the little white lies they’ve been telling one another — and themselves.

Canet’s “Tell No One” star Francois Cluzet co-stars alongside Benoit Magimel, Anne Marivin, Gilles Lellouche, Laurent Lafitte, Valerie Bonneton, Pascale Arbillot and Louise Monot.

“Little White Lies” is a co-production of Les Productions du Tresor, EuropaCorp, Caneo Films and M6 Films. Pic earned $45.7 million off 5.3 million admissions in France.

“This movie has touched a nerve, and it’s easy to see why. Its wit, charm and humanity are universal, and we are thrilled to bring it to a wider audience,” said MPI exec VP Greg Newman, who negotiated the distribution deal with Cecile Fouche of EuropaCorp.

“Little White Lies” world preemed at the 2010 Toronto Film Festival and was an official selection at the BFI London Film Festival the same year.
