"5 to 7"

Written and directed by Victor Levin, the dramedy stars Anton Yelchin, Bérénice Marlohe, Frank Langella and Glenn Close.

IFC Films has acquired U.S. rights to writer/director Victor Levin's romantic dramedy 5 to 7, which had its world premiere at this year's Tribeca Film Festival.

The film stars Anton Yelchin (Star Trek) as an aspiring novelist in New York who has a 5-to-7 affair with the wife of a French diplomat (Bérénice Marlohe). Their cultures, world views, personal ethics — and even dietary preferences — clash as their relationship develops.

"Victor Levin makes a formidable debut as a feature director and draws out impeccable performances from his entire cast in this film," Sundance Selects/IFC Films president Jonathan Sehring said in a statement.

5 to 7 was produced by Julie Lynn and Bonnie Curtis for Mockingbird Pictures and Sam Englebardt and William Johnson for Demarest Films. David Greathouse, Ruth Mutch, and Benjamin and Theresa Castellano-Wood are executive producers.

The deal was negotiated by Sundance Selects/IFC Films’ Arianna Bocco with CAA and WME Global on behalf of the filmmaker. The Solution Entertainment Group is handling international rights to the film.
