Film Movement has acquired US rights to Marie’s Story (formerly Marie Heurtin) ahead of its world premiere slot in Locarno.

Jean-Pierre Améris directs Isabelle Carré as a determined nun in late 19th century France who taught a deaf and blind child to communicate.

Denis Carot and Sophie Revil of Escazal Films produced Marie’s Story.

Film Movement co-president Adley Gartenstein brokered the deal with Nicolas Eschbach of Indie Sales and has earmarked a 2015 theatrical release.
