Oscilloscope Laboratories has acquired North American distribution rights to Lance Daly's "Kisses," a coming-of-age tale starring newcomers Kelly O'Neill and Shane Curry. The film will open theatrically later this year.

Set in Ireland, the film premiered at the Telluride Film Festival and Toronto Film Festival and took the audience prize at this year's Miami Film Festival and best film at the Galway Film Festival.

It was produced by writer/director Daly and Macdara Kelleher of Fastnet Films.
