iW NEWS | Liberation Takes "Eden"

Liberation Entertainment announced today the acquisition of North American rights to the award-winning Irish drama, "Eden." Directed by Declan Recks, the film is adaptation of Eugene O'Brien's Play that follows a troubled marriage in a small provincial town. The film had its world premiere at the 2008 Tribeca Film Festival last month where Eileen Walsh won the Best Actress Award. "This is a film that grabs hold of you and won't let go," commented Liberation CEO Jay Boberg. "We were completely taken by the power of the performances and Declan Recks' unique take on the material." The deal was negotiated by Josh Braun of Submarine on behalf of the filmmakers and Jay Boberg, CEO and Rob Williams, VP Acquisitions for Liberation Entertainment. Liberation plans a theatrical release in the fall of 2008. [Peter Knegt]
