Lifetime has picked up the 2015 Sundance fest title “Stockholm, Pennsylvania,” a dark drama that stars Saoirse Ronan and Cynthia Nixon.

The movie from first-time director Nikole Beckwith had mixed reviews out of Sundance. It’s set to premiere May 2 on Lifetime.

The film revolves around a woman (Ronan) who is kidnapped as a child. After 17 years of living in a basement with her abductor, she struggles to adjust after returning home to her biological parents.

Jason Isaacs (“Harry Potter,” “The State Within”) and David Warshofsky (“The Mentalist”) also star in the film, which played in Sundance’s U.S. Dramatic Competition section.

Greg Ammon (“59 Middle Lane”), Dan Halsted (“Virgin Suicides”) and Leslie Urdang (“Rabbit Hole”) produced “Stockholm” with Fido Features in association with Olympus Pictures.
