Cannes: Sony Pictures Classics Acquires Palme d'Or Contender ‘Wild Tales’

Ricardo Darín in "Wild Tales"

Sony Pictures Classics has acquired North America and Australia/New Zealand rights to Damian Szifron’s Cannes Competition entry "Wild Tales," Variety reports. Pedro Almodovar is one of the film's producers. Indiewire's Eric Kohn called the film "an early contender for the Palme D'Or."

Here's the description per the festival:

Vulnerable before a reality that can suddenly be modified and become unpredictable, the characters of "Wild Tales" cross the thin line that divides civilization from brutality. A story about love deception, the return of the past, a tragedy, or even the violence contained in an everyday detail, appear themselves to push them towards the abyss, into the undeniable pleasure of losing control.
