TrustNordisk handled the sale — IFC previously bought US rights after Sundance premiere.

Increasingly busy UK distributor Arrow Film Distributors has snapped up UK and Irish rights to Perfect Sense by David Mackenzie.

The modern love story drama, which premiered at Sundance Film Festival 2011 and stars Ewan McGregor and Eva Green, tells the story about Susan, who is a scientist searching for answers to important questions - so important that she has given up on other things, including love. Until she meets Michael, a talented chef.

Head of BBC Films Christine Langan said: “David Mackenzie is one of the boldest and most dynamic filmmakers around and BBC Films is thrilled that Tom Stewart and Arrow Films are on board for an exciting release of Perfect Sense.”

Tom Stewart, head of acquisitions at Arrow, added: “Perfect Sense is a stunning piece of filmmaking that showcases the amazing performances from two of today’s hottest stars Ewan McGregor and Eva Green. We very much look forward to working with them and David Mackenzie in bringing this very exciting film to the UK/Eire audiences.”

TrustNordisk is handling international sales. Susan Wendt, Head of Sales, said:  “We are very excited to work together with Arrow on Perfect Sense. They are very enthusiastic about the film and are more than confident that they will spare no efforts to create a huge awareness and do a great job around the UK release”.

A US deal was done during Sundance with IFC Films.

The film, which previously had a working title of The Last Word, is produced by Gillian Berrie from Sigma Films and Malte Grunert.

Mackenzie’s other new film of the year, music festival rom com You Instead, will be released this summer in the UK by Icon.
