Distribs’ day at ‘Beach’

Roadside, Goldwyn team for Seidelman

Indie distribs Roadside Attractions and Samuel Goldwyn Films are teaming to snap up North American rights to helmer Susan Seidelman’s (“Desperately Seeking Susan”) latest pic, “Boynton Beach Club.”

Based on an original story by Seidelman’s mother, Florence Seidelman, pic centers on five people in Boynton Beach, Fla., re-entering single life after decades of marriage.

Dyan Cannon, Brenda Vaccaro, Joseph Bologna, Renee Taylor, Sally Kellerman, Len Cariou, Michael Nouri and Mal Z. Lawrence star.

Distribs describe the pic as offering “an honest and optimistic look toward aging.”

“We felt there was a large, underserved, older moviegoing audience who would appreciate a romantic comedy that reflected their life experiences in a contemporary way,” Seidelman said. “We really wanted to avoid geriatric stereotypes: This is a movie about looking for love and companionship, and we hoped it would appeal to 30-year-olds as well as to 60-year-olds.”

Pic has played fests in the Hamptons, Sarasota and Palm Springs.

Producers had been self-distribbing the pic in Florida when Roadside and Goldwyn came along to make a deal for a July national release.

Seidelman produced with her mother and co-penned the screenplay with Shelly Gitlow.

Deborah Van Eck and Blair Rosenfeld exec produced, and Jamin O’Brien was co-producer.

Pic was formerly known as “Boynton Beach Bereavement Club.”
