IFC Films has acquired all North American rights to Fabienne Berthaud’s first English-language film, “Sky,” starring Diane Kruger and Norman Reedus. The film premiered at the Toronto Film Festival this year and already has releases planned in France and Germany through Haut et Court and Alamode. The drama also stars Gilles Lellouche and Q’orianka Kilcher.
The official synopsis reads: “Romy (Kruger) is on holiday in the USA with her French husband, Richard (Lellouche). But the journey quickly turns into a settling of old scores for this worn out couple. After an ultimate fight, Romy decides to break free. She cuts off her ties to a stable and secure life that has become alienating and escapes to the unknown. Drifting through a noisy Las Vegas to the wondrous high desert, Romy goes on with her solitary journey, abandoning herself to her sole intuitions and making it up as she goes. Liberated, she will cross paths with Diego (Reedus), a charismatic and solitary man, with whom she’ll share an inconceivable but pure love.”
