After premiering at the 2015 Sundance Film Festival, Sony Pictures Classics has declared that “The Bronze” will open in select cities on March 18. Melissa Rauch of “The Big Bang Theory” stars in and co-wrote the film with her husband Winston Rauch. Directed by Bryan Buckley, the film also stars Thomas Middleditch, Sebastian Stan, Gary Cole, Haley Lu Richardson and Cecily Strong

The official synopsis reads: “A decade ago, Hope Ann Greggory was America’s sweetheart. Her inspired performance on a ruptured achilles at the world’s most prestigious gymnastics tournament clinched an unlikely bronze medal for the U.S. team and brought glory to her hometown of Amherst, Ohio. But in the years since that epic third place victory, Hope hasn’t done a whole lot with her life. Still living in her dad Stan’s basement, still sporting her daily uniform of a Team USA gym suit with teeny-bopper bangs, ponytail and scrunchie, she spends her days at the mall milking her minor celebrity for free food and favors. Hope’s routine is upended when she learns that she must coach Amherst’s newest gymnastics prodigy Maggie in order to receive a sizeable financial inheritance.”

“The Bronze” will open in select cities on March 18, 2016.
