Digital entertainment curator FilmBuff along with Gotham and Beverly Hills veteran independent film distributors MJ Peckos' and Steven Raphael's DADA FILMS announced today that they will release Indian drama "Miss Lovely" in U.S. theaters. 

Directed by Ashim Ahluwalia, the film premiered at the 2012 Cannes Film Festival to mixed reviews. It delves deep into the underbelly of India's film industry during the 1980s, focussing specifically on Mumbai's C-grade (horror and soft-core porn) film production.

"We really responded to Ashim's unique perspective and his ability to explore controversial themes and issues," said FilmBuff's Head of Content Steven Beckman. "Through its docu-narrative hybrid approach, 'Miss Lovely'
 delivers a gritty, powerful lens into a stranger than fiction world that will surely resonate with audiences here in the United States."

The film will open on June 20th theatrically in New York and Los Angeles, with an expansion to follow.
