IFC Films has picked up US rights to Bernard Rose's The Kreutzer Sonata and will release it this year on its Festival Direct movies-on-demand label.

The film, which stars Danny Huston, Elisabeth Rohm and (in a cameo) Anjelica Huston in a dissection of modern marriage based on the Tolstoy novella, had its world premiere at Edinburgh last year.

Rose wrote the screenplay with Lisa Enos, who produced with Naomi Despres.

The deal for the film was negotiated by Arianna Bocco for IFC and for Eric Stevens for sales agent Independent.

IFC's Festival Direct programme now shows 12 new independent films a month.
