Swipe picks ‘Bone’ for int’l

Sundance winner finds home for worldwide sales

LONDON — Debra Granik’s double Sundance prize-winner “Down to the Bone” has been picked up for international sales by Frank Mannion’s London-based Swipe Films.

The movie, about a working-class wife and mother trying to overcome cocaine addiction, took the Sundance kudos for director and the Special Jury Prize for performance by Vera Farmiga.

Swipe made its debut as a sales company at Cannes last year with Siddiq Barmak’s “Osama,” which went on to win the Golden Globe for foreign-language film.

“Down to the Bone” was produced by Susan Leber and Anne Rosellini. Ira Schrek and Stephen Raphael, who are representing North American rights, negotiated the sales deal with Swipe.
