R.F.I. Porto, writer of the Sundance hit Blue Caprice, has signed with UTA.

The narrative film about the Beltway sniper attacks of 2002 premiered at the Sundance Film Festival and is screening in the NEXT section.

It was directed by Alexandre Moors and stars Isaiah Washington, Tequan Richmond, Tim Blake Nelson, Joey Lauren Adams, Leo Fitzpatrick and Cassandra Freeman.

Blue Caprice is Porto's first feature-writing credit. 

THR gave the film a strong review, saying: "The sense of how vulnerable young people can be blindly infected with the seething rage and violence of their trusted elders is conveyed with chilling efficiency in R.F.I. Porto’s pared-down screenplay."

Porto is managed by Will Rowbotham at Prolific.
