The Cinema Guild Acquires US Rights to Argentinian 'Twelfth Night' Riff 'Viola'

The Cinema Guild has acquired US distribution rights to Argentinian director Matías Piñeiro's "Viola," the Guild announced Tuesday.

A riff on "Twelfth Night," "Viola" follows a group of young actresses performing a production of Shakespeare's comedy while simultaneously mapping a web of hidden romantic liaisons. The film, which premiered in September at the Toronto International Film Festival, will get a limited theatrical release next year, to be followed by release on DVD and VOD.

The distribution deal for "Viola" was negotiated between the director and Ryan Krivoshey, of The Cinema Guild.
