Diane Kruger, Norman Reedus find love on the run in “Sky” trailer

“Sky” grew in popularity after becoming an official selection of the 2016 Toronto International Film Festival. The film’s high-profile cast helped make the film stand-out among buyers, which lead IFC Films to pick-up the project with plans to release it later this month.

In the film Romy (Diane Kruger) and Richard (Gilles Lellouche) are a French couple on vacation in America. They play at being free and wild in the California desert, but can’t escape the shadow hanging over their relationship. A drunken night in a bar leads to a violent confrontation, and Romy sees a chance to remake her life.

Joining Kruger and Lellouche in the film are Joshua Jackson as a small-town police officer, Norman Reedus as a loner living on the Vegas strip, and Lena Dunham as a pregnant trailer-park resident.

The film was directed by Fabienne Berthaud, working off a script co-written by Berthaud and Pascal Arnold.

The drama will be released right here in NYC as a limited showing on April 15, 2016. The film will also be released on VOD the same day. A theatrical rollout will follow after that.
