IFC Midnight acquired all US and UK rights to director Alex De La Iglesia’s “As Luck Would Have it.” The film world premiered at a special screening at this year’s Berlin Film Festival. It will premiere in North America in the Spotlight Section at this year’s Tribeca Film Festival.
“As Luck Would Have It” stars Jose Mota, Salma Hayek, Blanco Portillo, and Fernando Tejero. It follows Roberto (Jose Mota), an unemployed and broke advertising executive, turned down by every agency he applies to. In an inescapable rut, it takes a terrible and dramatic accident to change his life and mindset. Salma Hayek plays his loving wife, Luisa, in “the film’s best performance.”
