IFC Films Takes U.S. Rights to "My Best Friend"

By Indiewire | Indiewire October 31, 2006 at 4:19AM

IFC Films has acquired U.S. rights to Toronto International Film Festival gala title "My Best Friend" by French director Patrice Leconte, starring Daniel Auteuil. Auteuil portrays Francois, an arrogant antique dealer who is confronted by the fact that those closest to him do not like him. His business partner bets him a Greek vase that he cannot find a single person that truly calls him a friend, so Francois meets and asks a likable taxi driver, Bruno, to teach him how to be lovable. IFC Entertainment president Jonathan Sehring, and the company's Elizabeth Nastro and Ryan Werner negotiated the deal with Wild Bunch's Carole Baraton on behalf of the film. IFC Plans a theatrical release sometime in 2007. [Brian Brooks]
