The distributor has acquired US and Latin American rights to Golden Bear winner Claudia Llosa’s Berlin competition entry starring Jennifer Connelly, Cillian Murphy and Mélanie Laurent.

Sales agent Dreamcatchers made the announcement after Marina Fuentes and executive producer Mark Johnson negotiated the deal with Sony Pictures Classics.

Wanda’s Jose María Morales, Ibon Cormenzana of Arcadia, Phyllis Laing of Buffalo Gal and Jerome Vidal of Noodles produced Llosa’s first English-language film and follow-up to 2009 Golden Bear winner Milk Of Sorrow.

Aloft tells of a struggling mother who encounters the son she abandoned 20 years earlier. William Shimell also stars.
