EXCLUSIVE: Celluloid Dreams has picked up Noah Baumbach comedy Frances Ha [pictured] and closed deals for France (Memento), Australia (Transmission) and Benelux (A-Film), with further sales imminent.
The Telluride and Toronto hit, previously picked up by IFC Films from UTA for US, stars Greta Gerwig as an apprentice in a dance company who faces life’s challenges with unusual lightness and joy.
