Breaking Glass Pictures has acquired worldwide distribution rights to drama-thriller “Dynamite: A 60’s Love Story.” The film, based on the true story of screenwriter Max Bornstein’s life, follows a heroin addict in 1968 who works in the illegal porn industry. 

As Bornstein (Ian Harding) tries to earn a living while dealing with his self-destructive lifestyle, the film ultimately shows his story of self-actualization and redemption in the midst of personal conflict. Harding stars opposite Evanna Lynch, Carol Kane, Brendan Sexton III and Chaske Spencer. The film, co-written by Bornstein and Jason Noto, marks the directorial debut of filmmaker Tate Steinsiek.

Breaking Glass negotiated the acquisition with Jordan Levine of Yale Productions, who said in a statement: “We are thrilled to partner with Breaking Glass on the release of such a special film to us, with a very important and relevant message. Max has an unbelievable story that the world should learn about and from, and it’s wonderful knowing that our distributor recognizes this importance.”

Breaking Glass plans to release “Dynamite” in theaters this October.
