By Indiewire | Indiewire May 9, 2007 at 10:15AM

GreeneStreet Films International has acquired writer/director Cecilia Miniucchi's "Expired" for worldwide sales the company announced Wednesday. The film, which will close the Cannes Film Festival Critics Week sidebar and stars two-time Oscar nominee Samantha Morton, Jason Patric, Oscar-nominee Teri Garr and Illeana Douglas, is described as a "bittersweet comedy about Claire, a meter maid with a kind soul who resents having to enforce the law at all times, and Jay, an angry traffic officer who loves his job because it provides the perfect outlet for his anger and frustrations. Having both come from a place of despair and loneliness, Claire and Jay meet and engage in a tumultuous and twisted relationship, which eventually teaches them that love can spread magic seeds of redemption and hope, even in the most unlikely of people. The film's producer Jeffrey Coulter and Fred Ross negotiated the deal directly with GreenStreet Films International president Ariel Veneziano. [Brian Brooks]
