Cannes Winner Jean-Luc Godard’s ‘Goodbye to Language’ Gets U.S. Distribution

Kino Lorber has acquired all North American rights to Jean-Luc Godard’s 3D drama “Goodbye to Language,” six weeks after its premiere at the Cannes Film Festival.

“Goodbye to Language” was the co-winner of Cannes’ Jury Prize with Xavier Dolan’s “Mommy” and is slated to appear at festivals in the late summer and early fall.

It will open commercially in New York City in late October, followed by a national theatrical rollout on 3D screens, and then go out on digital VOD, home media and 3D Blu-ray release in 2015.

The 69-minute film, produced by Wild Bunch, centers on a married woman and a single man meeting and falling in and out of love.

Variety‘s Scott Foundas gave “Goodbye to Language” a strong review at Cannes: “Godard’s 39th feature-length work proves its maker has plenty left to say and plenty of new ways of saying it, from its freewheeling use of multiple video formats to its radical experiments in 3D.”
