Directed by Nuri Bilge Ceylan, whose "Once Upon a Time in Anatolia" won the Grand Prix at Cannes in 2011, "Winter Sleep" tells the story of a former actor, now hotel owner and the tumultuous relationship he has with his family. 

"'Winter Sleep' is a motion picture that will have movie audiences discussing with great passion its provocative discussions about art and artists, class struggle, and love and marriage. A film like this, so rich with ideas, dazzling dialogue, and intelligent characters, is one that is instantly unforgettable. We are proud to partner with Nuri Bilge Ceylan on his achievement of a lifetime," Adopt Films President Tim Grady and its Executive VP, Marketing & Distribution Jeff Lipsky said in a joint statement. 

Adopt Films has also handled distribution for the Oscar nominated "Omar" directed by Hany Abu-Assad, and Yuval Adler's Venice Film Festival award-winning thriller "Bethlehem."
