Music Box Films has acquired the North American rights to Pablo Larraín’s Berlinale 2015 Grand Jury Prize Winner, “The Club.” The film marks the filmmaker’s follow-up to his 2012 Oscar-nominated film, “No.”

The cast of “The Club” features stars from Larraín’s various previous films, including, Alfredo Castro (“Tony Manero,”” “Post Mortem,” “No”), Antonia Zegers (“Post mortem,” “No”),  Jaime Vadell (“No”), Alejandro Goic (“Gloria”), and Francisco Reyes (“Profugos”).

Here’s the official synopsis per Music Box: “Four men live together in a secluded house in a small seaside town. Each of them has been sent to this place to purge sins from the past. They live according to a strict regime under the watchful eye of a female caretaker, when the fragile stability of their routine is disrupted by the arrival of a fifth man, a newly disgraced companion, bringing with him the past they thought they had left behind.”

“We’ve followed Pablo Larrain’s impressive body of work closely over the years and ‘The Club’ further establishes him as one of the most masterful filmmakers in the world today,” said Ed Arentz of Music Box Films. “We’re excited for the opportunity to bring this dark, mordant yet compassionate film to North American audiences.”
Larraín has two features in the works: a biopic of Pablo Neruda, and “Jackie,” which is rumored to star Natalie Portman as Jacqueline Onassis.
