After making its way through the festival circuit (Sundance, Berlin and more), the US rights to A.J. Edwards’ “The Better Angels” have been picked up by Amplify. The black-and-white narrative about Abraham Lincoln’s childhood was produced by Terrence Malick and stars Diane Kruger.
“From the first frame of ‘The Better Angels,’ we were struck by the power and originality of A.J.’s vision,” said Amplify’s C.E.O. Logan Mulvey, “and we think audiences will fall in love with the film just as quickly as the whole Amplify team has.”
Amplify will release the film to theaters fall 2014, with a VOD and home video release to follow early 2015.
