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.
