Earlier this year at the Tribeca Film Festiva “Meadowland” opened to terrific early reviews. Now Cinedigm has acquired all North American distribution rights to the film and will be releasing it this fall.
The story is a stunning, yet haunting depiction of the psychological toll that a tragedy takes on a New York couple. Driven by a powerful, career-high performance by Olivia Wilde (Her; Drinking Buddies; Rush), the film also features Luke Wilson (Ride; Skeleton Twins; Anchorman; The Family Stone), Elisabeth Moss (Mad Men, Listen Up Philip; The One I Love; Get Him To The Greek), Giovanni Ribisi (Results; Selma; Public Enemies; A Million Way To Die In The West), Ty Simpkins (Jurassic World, Iron Man 3, Insidious) and John Leguizamo (Chef; Ride Along; John Wick; American Ultra). The script was written by Chris Rossi, and features a score by Adam Taylor (August: Osage County).
“Meadowland is precisely the sort of compelling, filmmaker-driven and performance-driven work that makes independent film so exciting,” said Cinedigm’s Yolanda Macias, EVP, Acquisitions. “Wilde is electrifying and Wilson is heartbreaking in Morano’s remarkable debut. It is wonderful to be working with such a deeply talented team.”
Meadowland marks the directorial debut of cinematographer Reed Morano. Wilde, who has been a passionate supporter of the film, serves as a producer, a position she’s undertaken in several of her previous projects (Drinking Buddies, Sun City Picture House, Body Team 12). The producing team is rounded out by Aaron L. Gilbert of Bron Studios, along with Margot Hand and Matt Tauber. Jennifer Levine, Jason Cloth of CW Media Finance, Alex Garcia, Santiago Garcia Galvan, Marla Rand, Scott Paterson and Lauren Selig are the executive producers.
Meadowland will have an October theatrical release.
