Factory 25 has acquired world rights to "Marvin, Seth and Stanley," starring Alex Karpovsky ("Girls," "Inside Llewyn Davis") by writer/director Stephen Gurewitz, who co-stars.

When the comedic road trip, which was shot on 16 mm, screened at festivals in 2012, Richard Brody at The New Yorker called it "an extraordinarily touching and quietly hilarious dramatic version of 'Shit My Dad Says.'"

The Brooklyn-based indie distributor plans to release the film digitally on January 28 on cable VOD, iTunes, Amazon VUDU, X-Box, Sony Playstation and other digital outlets before it premieres theatrically in February.

Here is the plot summary from Factory 25: 

The film joins the quarreling Greenstein brothers Seth (Karpovsky) and Stanley (Gurewitz) when they reluctantly agree to join their father, Marvin, for a weekend trip in rural Minnesota. Estranged from each other, the threesome of inept outdoorsmen rediscover repressed grudges as the weekend comically devolves into a series of daytime drinking episodes and botched outdoor pursuits . A serious comedy of deceit and stilted emotions, the sharp relationships in Marvin, Seth and Stanley are buffered by the warmth of an autumnal Midwestern landscape authentically captured through 16mm color cinematography.
