Strand Releasing Acquires U.S. Rights To Pat Mills' Comedy 'Guidance'

The Toronto Film Festival selection "Guidance" has been picked up by Strand Releasing.

The film, starring, directed by and written by Pat Mills, has a premise like a sitcom: an immature former child actor cons his way into a job as a high school guidance counselor and gives typically terrible advice. The protagonist is based on Mills, who appeared on Nickelodeon’s "You Can’t Do That On Television" when he was a kid.

Strand is planning a theatrical release in the Fall.
