IFC Films has acquired North American rights to comedy-drama “Goodbye to All That” five months after its premiere at the Tribeca Film Festival.
The film is directed by Angus MacLachlan from his own screenplay and stars Paul Schneider, who won the best actor in a narrative feature award at Tribeca. Anna Camp, Michael Chernus, Heather Graham, Ashley Hinshaw, Heather Lawless, Melanie Lynskey, Audrey Scott, Amy Sedaris and Celia Weston also star.
Producers are Mindy Goldberg and Anne Carey; Mark Clein, Ethan Leder and MacLachlan exec produced. The film will have a day-and-date release in December.
The film deals with the aftermath of a broken marriage as Schneider’s character deals with re-entering the dating pool. Variety’s Peter Debruge gave the film a positive review.
It’s MacLachlan’s feature directing debut, a decade after he wrote the screenplay for “Junebug.”
The deal was negotiated with ICM Partners on behalf of the filmmakers.
