Olive Films has picked up North American theatrical, TV, video and educational rights to Nothing Personal, the Irish-Netherlands co-production directed by Urszula Antoniak.

The film won seven awards at the 2009 Locarno International Film Festival and Olive has set an autumn release in the US.

Nothing Personal is the story of a rebellious young woman played by Lotte Verbeek and an old sage played by Stephen Rea who establish a bizarre relationship.

Olive Films president Farhad Arshad negotiated the deal with Bavaria Films head of sales Stefanie Zeitler.
