Film Festival Flix Nabs U.S. Rights to ‘Miss Julie’

PARIS– L.A.-based distributor Film Festival Flix has picked up U.S. rights to Mikael Berg’s feature debut “Miss Julie” (“Froken July”), the latest adaptation of August Strindberg’s 19th-century play.

Miss Julie” transposes Strindberg’s play – which is about lust, love, social class and the battle of the sexes — to a rustic 1920s country mansion. It stars Nathalie Soderqvist in the title role, opposite Klas Ekegren.

The movie has sold worldwide and played at the First Time Film Festival in the U.S. as well as the Scandinavian Film Festival.

“Staying true to our slogan ‘Think Independently,’ ‘Miss Julie’ has all of the elements we look for in a film,” said Benjamin Oberman, Film Festival Flix prexy and CEO.  “I am proud to support Mikael and his vision, and look forward to bringing this timeless classic to American audiences through our many platforms.”

Berg previously worked with Soderqvist and Ekegren on his 19th-century short “Amalia.”

Film Festival Flix will open “Miss Julie” later this year.

Another adaptation of “Miss Julie” directed by Liv Ullmann was released in December. It stars Jessica Chastain and Colin Farrell.
