IFC Films has acquired North American rights to Alex Ross Perry‘s Queen of Earth, starring Elisabeth Moss and Katherine Waterston as two best friends who, during a lakeside retreat, confront the issues that have driven them apart.
The film, which had its world premiere at this year’s Berlin Film Festival, also stars Patrick Fugit, Kate Lyn Sheil, Kentucker Audley and Keith Poulson. Written and directed by Perry, it was produced by Perry, Moss, Adam Piotrowicz and Joe Swanberg and executive produced by Christos V. Konstantakopoulos and Forager Film Company.
“Perry has created a fascinating and unnerving psychological portrait, which elicits a career-best performance from Moss and cements Perry’s status as a filmmaker to watch,” said Jonathan Sehring, president of Sundance Selects/IFC Films.
The deal for the film was negotiated by Arianna Bocco, senior vp acquisitions and productions for Sundance Selects/IFC Films, and Sean Berney, manager of acquisitions for Sundance Selects/IFC Films, directly with the filmmakers.
