Cannes: Oscilloscope Buys Mackenzie Davis Drama ‘Always Shine’

Oscilloscope Laboratories has acquired U.S. rights from Visit Films to Sophia Takal’s second directorial feature, “Always Shine.”

The psychological drama recently premiered at the Tribeca Film Festival, where it won the award for best actress in a U.S. narrative feature film for “Halt and Catch Fire” star Mackenzie Davis. Oscilloscope will release the film in theaters later this year.

Visit is selling international rights at the Cannes Film Festival, where it made the deal for the film.

Davis and “Masters of Sex” star Caitlin Fitzgerald play friends and actresses who embark on a weekend getaway to Big Sur. Once alone, their suppressed jealousies and deep-seated resentments bubble to the surface, causing them to lose grasp not just of the true nature of their relationship, but also of their own identities.

Oscilloscope’s Dan Berger said, “Sophia has created a haunting thriller about obsession, fame and femininity to rival the likes of the pinnacle films of that ilk. It has shades of Polanski and Bergman and yet it never ceases to be its own, wholly unique and authentic work.”

The film was produced by Sophia Takal, Lawrence Michael Levine and Pierce Varous.
