Film Movement Adopts "Familia"

By Indiewire | Indiewire April 6, 2006 at 12:40PM

Distributor Film Movement has acquired rights to controversial film "Familia," the first feature-length film from Canadian director Louise Archambault. The film tells the story of Michele, a thirty-something aerobics instructor who flees Montreal with her 14-year-old daughter Marguerite to escape her gambling debts. Their destination is California but, penniless, they make it only as far as Montreal's suburbs and the well-appointed home of Michele's childhood friend Janine. While the two women re-establish their relationship, Marguerite and Janine's daughter, forge a friendship through tentative forays into the adult world of drugs and sex. The deal was negotiated by Adley Gartenstein, director of acquisitions and business affairs on behalf of Film Movement and Marie-Alice Couret of Christal Films Distribution. [Brian Brooks]
