Berlin: Sundance Selects Picks Up Mia Hansen-Løve's Popular Competition Title 'Things to Come'

Sundance Selects has acquired U.S. rights to filmmaker Mia Hansen-Løve’s “Things to Come (L’Avenir),’ starring Isabelle
Huppert as a married philosophy professor who must begin a new life when her husband leaves her and her overbearing mother dies. The film world premiered this weekend at the Berlin International Film Festival. TOH! correspondent Demetrios Matheou calls it “a superb portrait of a woman whose response to what many would regard as a crisis is not just refreshing, but rather inspiring.”

The deal was negotiated by Arianna Bocco, SVP of

filmmakers.
