Kevin Asch's coming-of-age tale will be available theatrically and on demand.

FilmBuff will release Kevin Asch's Affluenza, a coming-of-age story starring Nicola Peltz, on July 11 theatrically and on demand, the distributor has announced.

Set during the summer of 2008 amid the looming financial crisis, the film, written by Antonio Macia, also stars Ben Rosenfield, Gregg Sulkin, Grant Gustin, Steve Guttenberg and Samantha Mathis.

"This is a film I felt compelled to make -- the themes of money, family and finding one's place in society have never been more relevant," Asch said.

"Kevin consistently delivers high concept, yet entertaining stories, and we have been huge fans of his work since first seeing his previous film, Holy Rollers. Affluenza possesses a strong visual style, terrific cast and a dynamic script combining highly relevant issues with a sense of youthfulness that will allow for the film to connect with wide audiences," said Steven Beckman, FilmBuff's head of content.

Affluenza is produced by Morris S. Levy's Mega Films and Asch's Lookbook Films. It is executive produced by Andrew Levitas, Dan Caffee, Ike S. Franco, Samuel V. Franco, Barry Rohrson and Sam Zietz.
