SXSW: The Orchard Buys Coming-of-Age Drama ‘I Dream Too Much’ (EXCLUSIVE)

While sales have been slow at this year’s SXSW, the Orchard has landed a deal for a movie that premiered in Austin a year ago: the coming-of-age drama “I Dream Too Much,” Variety has learned.

The Orchard will release “I Dream Too Much” on digital platforms such as iTunes as well as on VOD on June 21. The sale is for the film’s distribution rights in North America, the U.K., Australia and New Zealand.

The deal was negotiated by Paradigm’s Nick LoPiccolo.
