Distributor Pink Moon has acquired the Benelux rights from 104 films to Justin Edgar’s feature We Are The Freaks.
The comedy, starring 2014 Screen International Star of Tomorrow Jamie Blackley, follows the eventful night out of three teenagers, set against the backdrop of the social and political turmoil of 1990 England.
Edgar said he’s happy with the success the film has seen thus far, which was released in the UK on April 25.
“We always intended the film as a cult item for a savvy youth audience so I’m really pleased it has connected in that way”, said the director.
In addition to the film’s cult following, Blackley has also seen his star rise. He will appear in the teen drama If I Stay with Chloe Grace Moretz in August, and recently joined Yorgos Lanthimos’s upcoming feature The Lobster, starring Colin Farrell and Rachel Weisz.
