Benicio Del Toro’s ‘Jimmy P.’ Finds U.S. Home With IFC

Drama premiered at Cannes

Worldview Entertainment has sold U.S. distribution rights to “Jimmy P.: Psychotherapy of a Plains Indian” to IFC Films.

The film, which stars Benicio Del Toro and Mathieu Amalric, made its world premiere at the Cannes Film Festival and its North American debut earlier this month at the New York Film Festival. IFC plans to release the film next year.

Arnaud Desplechin directed from a screenplay he co-wrote with Kent Jones and Julie Peyr, based on the book by Georges Devereux about his relationship and multidisciplinary study of Jimmy Picard, a Blackfoot Indian who fought in World War II and suffered from psychological distress.

Pascal Caucheteux and Jennifer Roth produced while Worldview’s Christopher Woodrow and Molly Conners executive produced with Patrick Milling Smith and Ben Limberg.

The deal was negotiated by Arianna Bocco on behalf of IFC and CAA on behalf of Worldview.

Variety’s Scott Foundas said in his Cannes review that the film was “highly absorbing.”
