Cannes: Sony Pictures Classics Acquires Palme d'Or Contender ‘Wild Tales’

Sony
Pictures Classics has acquired North America and Australia/New Zealand
rights to Damian Szifron’s Cannes Competition entry “Wild
Tales,” Variety reports. Pedro Almodovar is one of the film’s producers. Indiewire’s Eric Kohn called the film “an early contender for the Palme D’Or.”

Here’s the description per the festival:

Vulnerable before a reality that can
suddenly be modified and become unpredictable, the characters of “Wild
Tales” cross the thin line that divides civilization from brutality. A
story about love deception, the return of the past, a tragedy, or even
the violence contained in an everyday detail, appear themselves to push
them towards the abyss, into the undeniable pleasure of losing control.
