IFC Films acquires Tribeca Film Fest drama “Match”

PanARMENIAN.Net - IFC Films has acquired North American rights to writer-director Stephen Belber's Match, The Hollywood Reporter said.

Based on the Tony-nominated stage play, the film stars Patrick Stewart, Carla Gugino and Matthew Lillard. Match made its world premiere at the 2014 Tribeca Film Festival.

Written by Belber, the story revolves around a Seattle couple (Gugino and Lillard) who travels to New York to interview former dancer Tobi (Stewart) for research for a dissertation about the city's dance landscape in the 1960s. Now a beloved but somewhat hermitic ballet instructor, Tobi eventually warms to the strangers, regaling them with wild anecdotes from his colorful past. But when the line of questioning veers away from his career and becomes uncomfortably personal, the true motive behind the couple's visit begins to emerge.

David Permut, Matt Ratner and Rick Rosenthal produced the film. David Beitchman, Adam Brawer, Chris Mangano, Nick Morton and Lawrence Kopeikin executive produced.

"Stephen Belber has done a tremendous job crafting a film with three must-see performances from Patrick Stewart, Carla Gugino and Matthew Lillard," said Sundance Selects/IFC Films president Jonathan Sehring.

The deal was negotiated by Sundance Selects/IFC Films' Arianna Bocco. ICM Partners repped the filmmakers.
