Cannes: Benicio Del Toro's 'A Perfect Day' Sells to IFC Films in U.S.

'A Perfect Day'

Fernando Leon de Aranoa's film stars Tim Robbins, Olga Kurylenko and Benicio Del Toro.

IFC Films is closing a deal for U.S. rights to A Perfect Day, Spanish writer-director Fernando Leon de Aranoa's English-language debut.

Benicio Del Toro, Tim Robbins, Olga Kurylenko and Melanie Thierry play international aid workers in the Balkans in the film, which premiered in Directors Fortnight in Cannes.

In a review, Hollywood Reporter critic David Rooney wrote: "The actors are all more than capable of breathing definition into their characters, and Del Toro in particular shows his usual sleepy-eyed charm. But Leon de Aranoa seems convinced the script (written with Diego Farias) is a lot funnier than it actually is."

The U.K.-based WestEnd Films brokered the deal with IFC.
