Gotham pair nabs ‘Alice’

Castle Hill, Dream to platform pic in December

Gotham-based companies Castle Hill Prods. and Dream have pacted to acquire theatrical rights in U.S. and English-speaking Canada to Sundance prize-winning drama “What Alice Found.”

The two will begin platforming the pic in key U.S. markets in December.

A. Dean Bell’s pic stars Emily Grace as Alice, a 19-year-old who is taken in by a poor, middle-aged couple (Judith Ivey and Bill Raymond) who attempt to steer her into prostitution.

“The acquisition of ‘What Alice Found’ represents a continued desire to acquire and release distinct motion pictures with Dream,” said Mel Maron, Castle Hill’s prexy of marketing and distribution.

Produced by Richard Conners, the film received a special jury prize for “artistic merit and emotional truth” at Sundance. It won the Grand Special Prize at the 2003 Deauville Film Festival.

Castle Hill and Dream most recently partnered on the re-release of Robert M. Young’s 1977 pic “Short Eyes.”
