IFC Films Acquires U.S. Rights to '5 to 7'
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.
