Distrib Films U.S. has announced the acquisition of North American rights to Cannes Critics’ Week closing night film “Hippocrates.”
Directed by second-time director, Thomas Lilti, the film stars newcomer Vincent Lacoste as Benjamin, a young med student who is starting a 6-month internship in the hospital ward run by his father. Benjamin knows he’s meant to be a great doctor, but his first experience as a junior doctor doesn’t turn out the way he hoped. The internship forces Benjamin to confront his limits and begin his transition into adulthood.
No release date has yet been announced.
