Indican Pictures has acquired "Emoticon ;)," which continues the not-so-regular tradition of movies with symbols in their titles ("π," "I ♥ Huckabees"). The film, which is the directorial debut of Livia De Paolis and played at the Gen Art Film Festival in 2013, is slated for a May 30 release.

"Emoticon ;)" stars De Paolis as an anthropology graduate student struggling to complete her thesis on modern means of communication. She meets her boyfriend's (Michael Cristofer) teenage kids (Miles Chandler, Diane Guerrero), and they learn about love and intimacy in the digital age.

The film also stars Carol Kane as De Paolis's PhD advisor, along with Sonia Braga, Christine Ebersole and Daphne Rubin-Vega. Copy editors everywhere can't wait to make sure their writers type in the right smiley face.
