Camelot Distribution Group has acquired international sales rights to the coming-of-age story Norman as executives prepare to fly to the Croisette.

Jonathan Segal directed the film about a high school student dealing with his father’s terminal illness. Dan Byrd, Emily VanCamp, Adam Goldberg and Richard Jenkins star and Norman will screen in the market.

The film screened at the Palm Springs International Film Festival and has won awards on the circuit, such as the Silver Hugo in the New Directors competition in Chicago and best feature honours at Rhode Island.

“I was quite impressed with [Norman] – its production, story and cast,” co-president of distribution Michael Kananack said. “Richard Jenkins is always a pleasure to see on screen and the rest of the cast are impeccable.”
