ThinkFilm rolls early Page turn
EmptyThinkFilm will bring Ellen Page's pre-"Juno" star turn in "The Tracey Fragments" to U.S. theaters in May.
In the drama, Page plays Tracey, a depressed teen on a search to find her missing younger brother. Bruce McDonald's unconventional film uses multiple split-screen images and a nonlinear narrative to convey her thoughts.
"Tracey" is nominated for six Genie Awards, set for March 3 in Toronto, including best actress for Page. It won the Manfred Salzgeber Panorama Jury Prize — for a film that "broadens the boundaries of cinema" — at last year's Berlin International Film Festival.
ThinkFilm, which picked up all domestic rights to "Tracey," will release the film May 9 in New York followed by a platform theatrical rollout. It debuts in New York on March 14 at the Museum of Modern Art's fifth annual Canadian Front series.
