Revolver takes aim at two films
Inks deals for 'Adrift,' 'The Limits of Control'LONDON -- Indie distributor Revolver Entertainment has snapped U.K. rights to Heitor Dhalia's "Adrift" and Jim Jarmursh's "The Limits of Control" in double whammy deal with Focus Features.
The deals for both films follow on the heels of Revolver's deal with Focus to distribute Cary Joji Fukunaga's "Sin Nombre" here in the U.K.
Revolver CEO Justin Marciano said: "We're glad to again be the trusted partner in the U.K. for Focus Features on two such powerful pieces of cinema."
Set on Brazil's Buzios beaches in the early 1980s, "Adrift" tells the story of a girl's coming of age one glorious summer.
Jarmusch's latest offering is billed as a poetic, allusive, stunning offbeat variation on the conventional hit man movie, with Isaach De Bankole heading a cast that includes Tilda Swinton, John Hurt, Gael Garcia Bernal, Paz de la Huerta and Bill Murray.
