Screen Media Films has acquired the U.S distribution rights to Sebastian Gutierrez's "Women in Trouble." The film - which premiered at the 2009 SXSW Film Festival - stars Carla Gugino, Josh Brolin, Emmanuelle Chriqui, Adrianne Palicki, Connie Britton, Simon Baker and Joseph Gordon-Levitt. It is described by Screen Media as "an outrageous, genre-bending, multi-layered comedy about one day in the lives of ten seemingly disparate women --including a porn star, a flight attendant, a psychiatrist, a masseuse, a bartender and a pair of call girls -- all with one thing in common: trouble." indieWIRE premiered an exclusive clip of the film upon its SXSW premiere.

"I am thrilled that Screen Media will be my partner in bringing these women to movie theaters around the country," Gutierrez said in a statement.

Robert Baruc, President of Screen Media Films, added: "I'm so proud that Screen Media is bringing this fantastically crazy, sexy, funny and warm-hearted film to audiences. This is one of those films that surprises you at every turn with a great line, a big laugh or a memorable moment you want to talk about hours after the credits end."

Screen Media Films plans to release the film theatrically on November 13, 2009. CAA negotiated the deal with Baruc and David Fannon, Executive-Vice President of Screen Media Ventures, negotiated on behalf of Screen Media.
