'Mine' theirs: Rights to Movement
Indie day-and-date distributor Film Movement has acquired all North American rights to Klaus Haro's Finnish drama "Mother of Mine." The film, Finland's 2006 Oscar submission for best foreign-language film, centers on a young boy sent by his mother to live with a foster family in Sweden during World War II. Film Movement will release "Mine" in theaters and as part of its DVD-of-the-month club. The deal was negotiated by Film Movement president Adley Gartenstein with Sanne Arlo of Nordisk Film Sales.
