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