UK distributor Metrodome has announced three new acquisitions on the heels of Sundance and Berlin. The company has struck deals for Wash Westmoreland and Richard Glatzer's Quinceanera, Lukas Moodysson's Container, and Xavier Palud and David Moreau's Them.
Kate Falconer, Metrodome's acquisitions and development manager, negotiated all three deals.
Quinceanera is a coming-of-age story about two Mexican-American teenagers in Los Angeles, starring Emily Rios, Jesse Garcia, and Chalo Gonzalez. It won the Sundance jury prize and audience award.
Swedish director Moodysson's non-narrative, black-and-white feature Container is the fourth of his films to be distributed by Metrodome.
French horror film Them stars Olivia Bonamy and Michael Cohen about an academic French couple whose new home in Romania is invaded.
"I am delighted with the fantastic new additions to our slate for this year," said Sara Frain, Metrodome's general manager, theatrical. "Ranging from the truly scary to the genuinely heart-warming and the out right daring, this promises to be one of Metrodome's most exciting years to date. I am thrilled to be forging new relationships with Celluloid Dreams, Studio Canal, and Dream Entertainment whilst continuing our long-standing relationships with Media 8, Trust Film Sales, and Lukas Moodysson."
Metrodome's other forthcoming releases include Tell Them Who You Are, Pretty Persuasion, and the re-release of Whit Stillman's Metropolitan.
