Thunderbird Releasing has acquired Christophe Honoré’s romantic drama Sorry Angel for the UK, following its premiere in Competition at the Cannes Film Festival.
The film, set in 1993, stars Pierre Deladonchamps and Vincent Lacoste, and follows the burgeoning relationship between Jacques, a 39 year old writer living in Paris, and Arthur, a student from Brittany.
The deal was negotiated by Edward Fletcher, Managing Director of Thunderbird Releasing, and Fionnuala Jamison, Head of International Sales at MK2.
The acquisition adds to a busy slate for the UK indie distributor, who also recently acquired Claire Denis’ High Life and Chekhov adaptation The Seagull, starring Saoirse Ronan, Annette Bening and Elisabeth Moss.
