The French-Canadian, black-and-white comedy will be screened this weekend at Fantastic Fest.

Comedy Dynamics has picked up the U.S. rights to Slut in a Good Way, a French-Canadian comedy directed by Sophie Lorain.

An early 2019 theatrical release is being planned for the black-and-white movie, which premiered in the U.S. at the Tribeca Film Festival. It will also screen at Austin's Fantastic Fest, which runs Sept. 20-27.

The movie is an exploration of teen sexuality and the double standard women face as it tells the story of a girl named Charlotte, who, in order to get over a break-up, gets a part-time job at a local toy store known for its attractive workers. When Charlotte begins to sleep around, she is branded a slut, while the boys brag about their conquests.

Comedy Dynamics is a production and distribution entity run by Brian Volk-Weiss. It has produced Kevin Hart's Guide to Black History and Animal Planet's Animal Nation With Anthony Anderson, among other shows. Earlier this year the company moved into distribution, with documentary Poop Talk as its inaugural release. Its next theatrical release will be the documentary The Laughter Life.

"I knew immediately that Slut in a Good Way was the perfect movie to showcase our intentions to seriously enter the high-end, independent comedy space," said Volk-Weiss. "This is a brilliant, artistic masterpiece that also happens to be as hysterical as it is powerful."
