Seventh Art Releasing has picked up North American rights to “Things I Never Told You” as well as world rights to the post-Holocaust documentary “The Long Way Home.”
The under $1 million-budget “Things I Never Told You,” starring Andrew McCarthy and Lili Taylor, is an English language comedy about a romance struck when a woman accidentally calls a suicide hotline volunteer.
The film, which won the Grand Prize at the 1996 Prague Film Festival, was directed by Spain’s Isabel Coixet and co-produced by Spanish production company Eddie Saeta and U.S.-based Carbo Films. The pic is expected to hit screens by early summer.
In addition, this fall the Los Angeles-based Seventh Art will unspool “The Long Way Home,” a Morgan Freeman-narrated documentary that follows the struggles of Holocaust survivors following World War II.
The Jewish refugees struggle to overcome global antagonism in their quest to establish a homeland. The film, penned and directed by Mark Jonathan Harris, was produced by Rabbi Marvin Hier and Richard Trank through Simon Wiesenthal Center’s Moriah Films.
