Kino Lorber has acquired all U.S. rights to Stephane Brizé’s new film “The Measure of a Man.”

The film, which follows an aging, unemployed man as he starts a new job, premiered at the 2015 Cannes Film Festival and marks Brizé’s sixthfeature film and third collaboration with actor Vincent Lindon (following “Mademoiselle Chambon” and “A Few Hours of Spring”).

Brizé (“Mademoiselle Chambon,” “Bastards,” “Friday Night,” “La Moustache”) directed and co-wrote the film with Olivier Gorce. Lindon, who stars as the unemployed Theirry, won the Best Actor award at Cannes for the film.

Here’s the official synopsis: “At the age of 51 and after 20 months on unemployment, Theirry starts a new job that soon brings him face to face with a moral dilemma. How much is he willing to accept to keep his job?”

“The Measure of a Man” is set for a fall 2015 theatrical release, with home media and digital releases planned for 2016.
