Entertainment One Picks Up U.S. Rights to 'Gabrielle'
Canada's contender in the best foreign-language Oscar competition also is being shopped internationally by the Canadian producer-distributor.
TORONTO -- Entertainment One will release Gabrielle, Canada's contender for the best foreign-language Oscar, in the U.S. market.
EOne Films International, which is distributing the French-language drama from director Louise Archambault and Montreal-based producer micro_scope internationally, did the deal for the stateside rights with eOne Films U.S.
The drama about a developmentally challenged woman’s quest for independence and sexual freedom bowed in Locarno, where it won an audience award.
The Quebec film then had a North American premiere in Toronto.
EOne plans a winter release stateside.
The French-language romancer stars newcomer Gabrielle Marion-Rivard in a semiautobiographical role where she performs opposite Alexandre Landry as her lover.
Micro_scope also produced two earlier Canadian best foreign-language candidates at the Academy Awards in Philippe Falardeau's Monsieur Lazhar and Denis Villeneuve's Incendies.
