Film Festival Flix Acquires U.S. Rights to ‘Mary Queen of Scots’

LONDON — Mousetrap Films’ distribution platform Film Festival Flix has picked up U.S. rights to Thomas Imbach’s costume drama “Mary Queen of Scots,” which stars Camille Rutherford. The deal was inked by Picture Tree Intl.

The movie, which world preemed in competition in Locarno, tells the story of Mary’s struggles between duty, the love for another man and the politics of the crown, as told through letters written to Queen Elizabeth I of England. The letters ultimately lead to her imprisonment and death.

Film Festival Flix has also acquired North American rights for Katherine Randolph’s “Adulthood” and James Huang’s “Starting from Scratch.”

“Adulthood” tells the tale of a group of friends entering their thirties, who, through unforeseen events, are forced to realize that adulthood means taking responsibility for themselves, their happiness, and their lives. The deal was made through Markwood Films.

“Starting from Scratch” stars James Huang, who also penned the script, and his off-screen wife Elizabeth Sandy. It is a “sequel” to all romantic comedies: first came love, then marriage, then separation, and then an IRS audit. Despite both Jake and Ally’s efforts to move on from their reality, they are forced to deal with the audit process, and each other. As they sort through the last years of receipts and the memories they represent, the inharmonious couple begins to understand what went wrong and that hindsight is 50/50.
