IFC to Distribute Anton Yelchin-Berenice Marlohe’s ‘5 to 7’ Stateside

'5 to 7' Film Review

IFC Films has acquired U.S. rights to Victor Levin’s romantic dramedy “5 to 7,” starring Anton Yelchin and Berenice Marlohe.

The film, which premiered in April at the Tribeca Film Festival, also stars Olivia Thirlby, Lambert Wilson, Frank Langella and Glenn Close.

Producers are Julie Lynn and Bonnie Curtis for Mockingbird Pictures, Sam Englebardt and William Johnson for Demarest Films; exec producers are David Greathouse, Ruth Mutch, and Benjamin and Theresa Castellano-Wood.

Yelchin portrays an aspiring novelist who has an affair between the hours of 5 p.m. and 7 p.m. with the beautiful wife (Marlohe) of a French diplomat.

Variety’s Peter Debruge said in his review at Tribeca that “5 to 7” was “refreshingly articulate.”

The deal was negotiated by Arianna Bocco of IFC with CAA and WME Global on behalf of the filmmakers. The Solution Entertainment Group is handling international rights to the film.

Levin’s TV credits include being a co-executive producer on AMC’s “Mad Men” and an exec producer and showrunner on NBC’s “Mad About You.”
