Wolfe Releasing has announced the acquisition of all U.S. rights to Canadian LGBT romantic comedy “Portrait of a Serial Monogamist” ahead of its world premieres at the Inside Out LGBT Film Festival in Toronto.
The film’s synopsis reads: “‘Portrait of a Serial Monogamist’ is the story of Elsie, a forty-something television producer and serial monogamist with a long history of broken hearts. When she breaks up with her long-term girlfriend to pursue a younger woman, Elsie is faced with pressure from her friends and family, and the growing realization that she may have made a mistake.”
“‘Serial Monogamist’ is an unusually smart romantic comedy that tackles commitment issues with originality and surprising humor,” said President of Wolfe Releasing Jim Stephens in a statement. “It’s a standout feel-good movie and we look forward to releasing this film for all U.S. audiences.”
“Portrait of a Serial Monogamist” will world premiere May 31 as the Closing Night Gala of the Inside Out Toronto LBGT Film Festival, and then screen at the Frameline International LBGTQ Film Festival in June. Other top film festival screenings will be announced shortly. Wolfe will release the film on DVD, VOD and digital platforms in late 2015 or early 2016.
