Rialto Pictures has largely been known for the excellent catalog of classic films, which they lovingly restore and bring back to theaters throughout the year. But 2013 marks a bit of change for the company. They have teamed up with French distributor StudioCanal and launched Rialto Premieres, a shingle that will allow them to bring first-run films to the United States, giving an audience to pictures that might never make their way stateside — and their first offering is the French comedy “The Stroller Strategy.”

Directed by Clément Michel and starring Raphaël Personnaz (“The Princess of Montpensier,” “Anna Karenina“), Charlotte Le Bon (“Mood Indigo“) and Jérôme Commandeur (“Bienvenue chez les Ch’tis“) tells the “Three Men And A Baby“-esque story of Thomas Platz, who unexpected becomes the guardian of a baby, and tries to use his newfound fatherhood to win back his ex-girlfriend Marie. And this exclusive trailer for the movie, gives a nice indication of the tone of the film which suggests a pleasant French confection that might be a nice break from the summer of blockbuster bloat.
