Anton Yelchin May-December Romance ‘5 to 7’ Goes to IFC Films

Anton Yelchin May-December Romance '5 to 7' Goes to IFC Films

IFC Films has acquired the U.S. rights to writer/director Victor Levin’s debut film, the heartfelt romance “5 to 7,” which premiered at this year’s Tribeca Film Festival to mixed reviews. “Sumptuous and romantic in an attractively old-fashioned way,” wrote The Hollywood Reporter. “Sappy and painfully jejune,” wrote The Playlist

In “5 to 7,” an aspiring young writer named Brian, played by Anton Yelchin (“Like Crazy”) meets Arielle (Bérénice Marlohe), a French diplomat’s wife, outside of the St. Regis Hotel in Manhattan.  The two begin a passionate May-December love affair, and Brian begins to yearn for more than just the hours of five to seven to spend with his new beloved. Frank Langella and Glenn Close also star as Brian’s parents.

Levin, a TV and film writer, has worked as a co-executive producer on “Mad Men,” as show runner of “Mad About You” (for which he shared a Golden Globe) and as a writer/producer on “The Larry Sanders Show.”  His film work includes the screenplay to “Win a Date with Tad Hamilton!”
