Liberation Entertainment has picked up North American rights to Declan Recks' Irish drama Eden.

The company plans a theatrical release in autumn for the picture, which screens at the Edinburgh International Film Festival this week and premiered at Tribeca in April.

Reck's adaptation of the Eugene O'Brien play examines a troubled marriage in a small provincial town and stars Aidan Kelly and Eileen Walsh.

David Collins of Ireland's Samson Films produced and Josh Braun of Submarine brokered the deal on behalf of the film-makers with Liberation CEO Jay Boberg and vice president of acquisitions Rob Williams.
