Sundance Selects bought U.S. rights to Mia Hansen-Love’s French drama “Things to Come,” four days after its world premiere at the Berlin Film Festival.

“Things to Come” stars Isabelle Huppert as a married philosophy professor whose life revolves around her books, her students and her overbearing mother. When her husband leaves her and her mother passes away, she begins a new life alone except for her cat.

“Things to Come” is the third collaboration between Sundance Selects and Hansen-Love following “The Father of My Children” and “Goodbye First Love.”

Charles Gilbert is the producer. It’s a CG Cinema production in co-production with Canal+, Arte France, Pro-Cirep, CNC and Hessen Film Fund in association with Cofinova 12 and Cineimage 10.

Variety‘s Guy Lodge said in his Berlin review: “Following widespread distribution for the dazzling but younger-skewing ‘Eden,’ the arthouse future for Hansen-Love’s latest is surely a bright one.”

Jonathan Sehring, president of Sundance Selects/IFC Films, said, “Anchored by a deeply moving performance by the incomparable Isabelle Huppert, ‘Things to Come’ is a profoundly moving film with universal themes about life and loss. We are thrilled to be working again with Charles as well as with Mia who is fast becoming one of the world’s great auteurs.”

The deal was negotiated by Arianna Bocco for Sundance Selects/IFC Films with Berenice Vincent of Film Sales Losange on behalf of the filmmakers.
