Sundance Selects has said yes to Non-Fiction, taking U.S. rights to the Juliette Binoche starrer ahead of the movie’s world premiere in Venice. It will also screen in Toronto the following week.
The film, written and directed by French multihyphenate Olivier Assayas, marks the latest collaboration between Assayas and Binoche, who previously starred in 2014’s Clouds of Sils Maria and 2008’s Summer Hours.
Binoche appears alongside French stars Guillaume Canet (Rock’n Roll) and Vincent Macaigne (C’est la Vie!). Canet plays a book editor to Macaigne’s author as they struggle with the upheaval in the publishing industry and their midlife crises. Binoche plays Canet’s wife navigating her changing desires.
Assayas calls it a “bittersweet comedy” in the same vein as Summer Hours, which “deals with the strange ways our world has moved in since.”
Sundance Selects took the rights to Assayas’ previous films Carlos, Clouds of Sils Maria, Something in the Air, Summer Hours and his most recent, Personal Shopper, starring Kristen Stewart.
The film is produced by Charles Gillibert under his CG Cinema banner. Nicolas Brigaud-Robert’s Playtime handled international sales.
