The movie sold for around $1.5 million, according to those with knowledge of the negotiations.
“Little Boxes” is directed by Rob Meyer (“A Birder’s Guide to Everything”). The story follows a family—played by Melanie Lynskey, Nelsan Ellis (“True Blood”) and Armani Jackson–after a move to suburban Washington, “gently touching on issues of race, class and privilege,” writes Variety critic Geoff Berkshire.
The cast also includes Oona Laurence (“Southpaw”) and Janeane Garofalo.
The picture was produced by Jared Goldman, Jordan Horowitz, Ken Keller and Caron Rudner. Executive producers are Cary Fukunaga, Wyatt Gatling, Marc Simon and Rose Troche.
Fukunaga and Netflix previously collaborated on “Beasts of No Nation,” which launched the streaming service’s original movie offerings last fall.
The Tribeca Film Festival closes on Sunday.
