Oscilloscope Laboratories has acquired North American rights to Jeff Preiss’ drama “Low Down,” starring John Hawkes and Elle Fanning as father-daughter. The film world premiered in the Narrative Competition at this year’s Sundance Film Festival, where it won the Best Cinematography award. Glenn Close and Peter Dinklage also co-star.
In the true story, Fanning embodies Amy Albany (whose memoir the film is
based on), a girl forced to cope with her drug addicted father, pianist
Joe Albany (Hawkes), while coming of age during the ’60s and ’70s. Close plays her stern but loving grandmother.
No release date has been announced as of yet.
