Juliette Binoche's 'Goodnight' Heads U.K., Korea,

Global Screen sells drama to more than 30 territories

LONDON — Arrow Film has acquired all rights for the U.K. and Ireland to Juliette Binoche-starrer “A Thousand Times Goodnight” from Global Screen, which has sold the pic to more than 30 territories.

The drama also went to South Korea (Cinema Republic), China (Champ Lis), Hong Kong (Edko), Malaysia and Indonesia (Suraya), and Estonia (Estinfilm), while interest from the U.S. is strong, Global Screen said.

The pic was recently released by Euforia in Norway, where it is still in the top ten after five weeks.

The film, which was helmed by Erik Poppe (“Troubled Water”), centers on Rebecca (Binoche), a war photographer, who struggles to reconcile her job with her family life.

The drama premiered at the World Film Festival in Montreal, where it was awarded the jury’s Special Grand Prix. The Variety reviewer wrote: “Deftly sidestepping both melodrama and family-values messaging, Poppe imbues the film with enormous emotional resonance, brilliantly grounded by his leading lady.”

Pic also toplines Danish actor Nikolaj Coster-Waldau (“Game of Thrones”), Maria Doyle Kennedy, newcomer Lauryn Canny and Larry Mullen Jr., best known as the drummer for rock group U2.
