Magnolia will partner with Great Point Media for a U.S. release.

Magnolia Pictures is partnering with Great Point Media for the release of the revisionist Western Damsel for the U.S.

Robert Pattinson and Mia Wasikowska star in the feature from David Zellner and Nathan Zellner that has had an extensive festival run, including screenings at Sundance, Berlin and SXSW.

Damsel follows an affluent pioneer Samuel Alabaster (Pattinson) as he ventures across the American Frontier to find and marry the love of his life, Penelope (Wasikowska). As Samuel traverses the Wild West with a drunkard named Parson Henry (David Zellner) and a miniature horse called Butterscotch, their once-simple journey grows treacherous.

The Zellners produced the movie, along with Chris Ohlson.

ICM Partners and Great Point negotiated the deal on behalf of the filmmakers.
