“Adrift in Manhtattan” has found a mooring.
The Heather Graham drama will be distributed by Screen Media Films with a Sept. 21 theatrical release date New York. The film’s Los Angeles release will be through the Los Angeles Latino International Film Festival, which runs Oct 7-14. Pic’s Sundance preem raised eyebrows for the graphic sex scene with Graham.
“We love the film, and it has a great cast that is totally behind the film,” enthused Screen Media president Robert Baruc. Baruc noted that this is one of six theatrical films that Screen Media is doing this year, including the upcoming doc “Skid Row,” in which Fugees performer Pras Michel lives as a homeless man in the infamous L.A. slum.
“We’re looking on the lighter side, too,” said Baruc. “We have a couple of comedies coming up.” The company has expanded from home video into theatrical distribution this year with Jay Baruchel laffer “I’m Reed Fish.”
“Adrift,” a story about the chance meetings between the film’s three leads, is directed by Alfredo De Villa and garnered acclaim at fests in Indianapolis and Palm Beach.
