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.

“I Dream Too Much” centers on a recent college graduate (played by newcomer Eden Brolin) who moves home to study for the LSATs and take care of her injured aunt (Diane Ladd).

Katie Cokinos wrote and directed the film, which was exec produced by Richard Linklater, and produced by Jay Thames of 77 Films and Ed McWilliams of Attic Light Films.

The deal was negotiated by Paradigm’s Nick LoPiccolo.
