Tribeca Film to Release Venice Award Winner ‘Still Life’
Tribeca Film, the New York-based distributor loosely affiliated with the Tribeca Film Festival, has picked up North American rights to “Still Life,” the Uberto Pasolini film that premiered at the 2013 Venice Film Festival.
Starring Eddie Marsan (“Happy-Go-Lucky”) and Joanne Froggatt (“Downton Abbey”), “Still Life” will hit theaters Jan. 16, just after the movie is released on VOD and digital platforms Jan. 13.
The plot follows a solitary South London councilman (Marsan) and the unexpected relationship that blossoms between him and the daughter (Froggatt) of an elderly alcoholic who is one of his cases.
The pic won four awards at Venice, including a trophy for best director. Felix Vossen, Christopher Simon and writer-director Pasolini produce.
“Still Life” joins a slate of Tribeca releases including “Listen Up Philip,” “Nas: Time is Illmatic,” “Let’s Kill Ward’s Wife” and “I Am Big Bird.”
