Cinema Guild Picks Up ‘Before and After Dinner,’ Portrait of Louis Malle Muse André Gregory

Cinema Guild Picks Up 'Before and After Dinner,' Portrait of Louis Malle Muse André Gregory

The Cinema Guild has acquired U.S. distribution rights to Cindy Kleine’s documentary “Before and After Dinner: The Life and Work of André Gregory,” a portrait of the actor who most famously starred in Louis Malle’s “My Dinner with André.”

Gregory’s body of work extends vastly beyond screen acting, as Kleine depicts in her film: He is also a writer, director, teacher, painter and “master storyteller.” Indeed, Gregory’s absorbing raconteur abilities are the centerpiece of the talky Malles classic.

Kleine’s previous film is 2008’s “Phyllis and Harold,” a sort of “Capturing the Friedmans”-esque account of her mother and father’s dysfunctional relationship.

“Before and After Dinner” will open theatrically in spring of 2013. Below is the trailer from Kleine’s Kickstarter page.
