The distributor has picked up all US rights from Elle Driver to Andre Techiné’s recent Berlinale competition world premiere.
Being 17 will open in late autumn and takes places against the mountainous backdrop of the Pyrenees, where two young classmates start off as enemies and gradually develop feelings for each other.
Sandrine Kiberlain stars with Kacey Mottet Klein, Corentin Fila, and Alexis Loret.
This will be the fifth Techiné film that Strand distributes after Wild Reeds, The Girl On The Train, Witnesses and Unforgivable.
Techiné collaborated on the screenplay with Girlhood director Celine Sciamma, whose film Strand also released.
Strand co-president Jon Gerrans brokered the deal with Adeline Fontan Tessaur of Elle Driver.
