Morgan Freeman-Diane Keaton Rom-Com 'Ruth & Alex' Picked Up By Focus World

Focus World has picked up the U.S. distribution rights for the romantic comedy "Ruth & Alex," which stars beloved veteran actors Morgan Freeman and Diane Keaton.

The film, which debuted at the 2014 Toronto International Film Festival, tells the story of a couple (Freeman and Keaton), who are in the midst of deciding whether to sell the Brooklyn home they have been living in for the past 40 years. Cynthia Nixon co-stars as the couple’s niece, who also happens to be a realtor (so we know which direction she wants them to go).

"Ruth & Alex" is an adaptation, based on Jill Ciment’s 2009 novel "Heroic Measures." Focus World has yet to announce a release date.
