Kino Lorber has picked up U.S. rights to Jean-Luc Godard's "Film Socialisme," which had its world premiere at the Festival de Cannes last year. Kino-Lorber confirmed to iW its acquisition and said it is tentatively planning a mid-May theatrical release. No other details were immediately available.

With a cast that includes Patti Smith, Elisabeth Vitali, Alain Badiou, Christian Sinniger, Louma Sanbar, Maurice Sarfati, the film is described by a Unifrance description as a "symphony in three movements." "Things Such As": A Mediterranean cruise. Numerous conversations, in numerous languages, between the passengers, almost all of whom are on holiday... "Our Europe": At night, a sister and her younger brother have summoned their parents to appear before the court of their childhood. The children demand serious explanations of the themes of Liberty, Equality and Fraternity. "Our Humanities": Visits to six sites of true or false myths: Egypt, Palestine, Odessa, Hellas, Naples and Barcelona.

In his review from Cannes, indieWIRE's Eric Kohn said of the film: "'Film Socialisme' is a highly fragmented piece that moves between several locales and situations with no easy guide to help sort through the mess. American viewers are abruptly distanced from the movie because Godard chose to subtitle the movie in 'American Navajo,' a made-up lyrical abstraction of the French dialogue..."
