NEW YORK -- Screen Media Films has acquired worldwide rights to the dramatic thriller "Lake City," starring Sissy Spacek, Troy Garity, Rebecca Romijn and Dave Matthews.

Keith Carradine and Drea De Matteo also star in the film, the latest theatrical acquisition from this spring's Tribeca Film Festival.

Writer-directors Perry Moore and Hunter Hill's feature follows a young man (Garity) who journeys to the rural Virginia home of his mother (Spacek) to hide from the drug dealer (Matthews) of his estranged wife (De Matteo).

Screen Media will release the film in New York, Los Angeles and five urban markets on Nov. 7. Allison Sarofim, Donna Bascom and Mike Ryan produced the film with executive producers Mark Johnson, Weiman Seid and Sally Pope through N.Y.-based Sixty-Six Productions.

Robert Baruc and David Fannon negotiated the deal on behalf of Screen Media.
