North American rights to Daniele Luchetti's "My Brother is an Only Child" (Mio Fratello e Figlio Unico) have been acquired by THINKFilm with a planned March, 2008 theatrical release, Mark Urman, the company's theatrical division head announced Wednesday. The film, which will screen at the upcoming Toronto International Film Festival, was represented by THINKFilm International for worldwide sales in Cannes where it screened in the official selection. THINKFilm International Head of Sales, Eve Schoukroun, along with THINK executives Urman, Randy Manis and Ben Stambler sealed the arrangement with Marco Chimenz, who produced the film with Riccardo Tozzi and Giovanni Stabilini, his partners at Cattleya, their Rome-based film and TV production company. The film has earned $8.5 million at home in Italy. Set in a small Italian town in the '60s and '70s, the film tells the story of two brothers who want to change the world--but in completely different ways. The two polar opposite siblings find conflict against the backdrop of the turbulent era. [Brian Brooks]
