Sundance Selects to Release Claire Denis' Cannes Drama 'Bastards'

Sundance Selects has acquired U.S. rights to Claire Denis’ “Bastards,” starring Vincent Lindon and Chiara Mastroianni. The film, which world premiered at the 2013 Cannes Film Festival, will make its U.S. premiere next month at the New York Film Festival, following its North American one in Toronto. The company plans to release it October 25th.

“Claire Denis is a remarkable filmmaker who has once again created a powerful work of cinema,” said Jonathan Sehring, President of Sundance Selects/IFC Films.” “‘Bastards’ is a complex, thought-provoking addition to her already impressive body of work. We look forward to working with her again.”

Here’s the plot synopsis per Sundance Selects: “Bastards” follows Marco
Silvestri, a captain on a container-ship who is called urgently back to
Paris by his desperate sister Sandra. Sandra’s husband has committed
suicide, the family business has gone under, her
daughter has gone adrift – and she holds powerful businessman Edouard
Laporte responsible. Determined to exact a terrible revenge for the
violence done to his family, Marco moves into the building where
Laporte’s mistress Raphaelle lives; but he can’t avoid
Sandra’s secret manipulations… or the fact that he is falling in love
with Raphaelle.
