Cannes Winner ‘Measure of a Man’ Bought by Kino Lorber

Kino Lorber has acquired all U.S. and Canadian rights to Stephane Brizé’s “The Measure of a Man,” starring Vincent Lindon, winner of the best actor award at the Cannes Film Festival.

Brizé directed from a script he co-wrote with Olivier Gorce about a working-class man struggling with unemployment and later facing a difficult moral choice as a security guard in a supermarket. Lindon also starred in Brizé’s “Mademoiselle Chambon” and “A Few Hours of Spring.”

Variety‘s Scott Foundas gave “The Measure of a Man” a strong review, calling it “a veritable master class in understated humanism.”

Kino Lorber, which released “Mademoiselle Chambon” in the U.S., plans to release “The Measure of a Man” in theaters in the fall. Home media and digital releases will follow in 2016.

The deal was negotiated between Kino Lorber’s Richard Lorber and MK2 International’s Victoire Thevenin.
