‘Take My Nose…Please!’ Comedy Documentary Lands at the Orchard

Parvenu Ventures LLC has granted digital rights for North America for its comedy documentary film “Take My Nose… Please!” to the Orchard.

The film is directed by the 89-year-old first-time filmmaker Joan Kron, former contributing editor at large of Allure Magazine for 25 years and former fashion reporter of the Wall Street Journal. It explores the pressure on women to be attractive through the lens of comedy, and features Jackie Hoffman, Judy Gold, Julie Halston, Lisa Lampanelli, and Giulia Rozzi.

The Orchard will distribute the documentary in the United States and Canada on all digital and on-demand platforms beginning on Jan. 9, which is Kron’s 90th birthday. The film is currently finishing its Oscar-qualifying theatrical run in theaters in Los Angeles and New York.

The film won the audience award at the Miami Film Festival and at the Berkshire International Film Festival.

“I am excited to be working with The Orchard to bring this film to a larger audience,” said Kron. “We learned in festivals and in our theatrical screenings how the picture resonates with women — and men — by opening up for discussion a topic often spoken about in whispers. After years as a print journalist, it is thrilling for me to see how a film can affect audiences viscerally.”

“Take My Nose” follows two comedians as they deliberate about going under the knife: Emily Askin, an improv performer, has always wanted her nose refined; and Emmy-nominated Hoffman, a seasoned headliner on Broadway and TV, considers herself ugly and regrets not having the nose job offered to her in her teens.

Kron also produced “Take My Nose” with Brian David Cange; W. Wilder Knight, II; and Andrea Miller. Bill Scheft, a long-time writer for David Letterman, and standup performer Adrianne Tolsch are executive producers.

The agreement was negotiated by Knight of Pryor Cashman on behalf of the filmmakers and by Danielle DiGiacomo for the Orchard.
