SUNDANCE: CEO Brian O’Shea and his team are Berlin-bound with international rights to the acclaimed Park City selection.
Obvious Child premiered in the NEXT section and stars Jenny Slate as a comedian at a crossroads who may have met the right man.
Gillian Robespierre’s feature directorial debut also stars Jake Lacy, David Cross and Gaby Hoffmann.
Elisabeth Holm produced while Rooks Nest Entertainment, Sundial Pictures, Votiv Films, Slate, Robespierre and David Kaplan served as executive producers.
A24 picked up North American rights to the film in Sundance and plans a theatrical release this year.
“Charming, winning and commercial, this Sundance breakout is sure to be a hit for international audiences” said O’Shea.
