Berlinale Panorama opener "The Tracey Fragments" by Bruce McDonald has been picked up by Canada's Odeon Films. Odeon Films president Bryan Gliserman has sealed an all-rights-deal for the Canadian territory with the film's producers, Paul Barkin, Bruce McDonald, Sarah Timmins, and with
Munich-based world sales company Bavaria Film International. The film is described as a "a dazzling pop art underground fashion, based on the critically-acclaimed and same-named novel by Vancouver author Maureen Medved, who also penned the screenplay, and stars young actress Ellen Page ("Hard Candy") as the scared protagonist Tracey Berkowitz."
