Oscilloscope Laboratories has acquired all North American rights to Lou Howe’s directorial debut “Gabriel,” which stars Rory Culkin as a troubled teen.
Culkin stars as the titular character, a vulnerable teen at his psychological breaking point, struggling to keep it together in the wake of his father’s suicide. The synopsis continues: “Convinced that reuniting with an ex-girlfriend holds the answers to his troubles, Gabriel risks everything in a desperate pursuit that will take him to uncharted and unexpected places and test the limits of those closest to him.”
“‘Gabriel’ is a gem – a highly impressive debut feature that is an emotional, yet unsentimental character study with an incredible lead performance by Rory Culkin,” said Oscilloscope’s Dan Berger and David Laub in a statement. “We’re extremely excited to be able to share this film with the world.”
Oscilloscope plans a release later this year.
