StudioCanal has announced a North American sale on Erick Zonca's Julia.

Magnolia Pictures has taken the film which stars Tilda Swinton. Julia was released earlier this year by StudioCanal in France and has sold to some 23 territories including Germany's Kinowelt, Spain's Verigo and the UK's Curzon Artificial Eye.

In a press release, Magnolia president Eamonn Bowles said: 'Tilda Swinton's performance is literally one of the most amazing things I've seen on film. Julia defies your expectations at every turn.'
