Kino International has acquired US rights to Azazel Jacobs' Momma's Man, which was one of the highlights of Sundance earlier in the year when it received its world premiere.

The film was formerly acquired by THINKFilm but was resold in light of the company's current financial difficulties.

The picture will open in August 22 in New York's Angelika Film Center and other local theatres and will roll out nationwide in autumn.

The story centres on a emotionally crippled married man from Los Angeles who moves back in with his parents in New York. Alex Orlovsky and Hunter Gray produced and Paul Mezey served as executive producer.

Kino president Donald Krim brokered the deal with Sarah Lash of Cinetic Media.
