Comedies “The Lobster”, “A Perfect Day”, “Mia Madre” Sell at Cannes

(via Variety)

Though Cannes Film Festival is more synonymous with very timely and hard hitting dramas, high concept, socially conscious, and/or foreign comedies do have a place there.

At Cannes, Distributor Alchemy has bought up the U.S. rights to The Lobster, a dystopian futuristic romantic comedy where it’s illegal to be single, starring Colin Farrell, and Italian dramedy Mia Madre co-starring John Turturro.

IFC Films has acquired the U.S. rights to international war comedy “A Perfect Day” which includes the cast of Benicio Del Toro, Tim Robbins, Olga Kurylenko, and more.

Having the stamp of approval of premiering at Cannes, we hope to see all these films theatrically released in the States soon.
