Curzon acquires UK and Ireland rights to Il Mio Corpo
UK’s leading arthouse distributor and cinema chain Curzon has acquired the rights to Il Mio Corpo in the UK and Ireland. It will be featured both in theaters and on Curzon’s digital platform.
Following its international premiere at this year’s Cannes Film Festival as part of the ACID selection, Michele Pennetta’s film has received recognition by press and audiences alike.
Pennetta’s second feature tells the story of Oscar and Stanley – the different, yet similar heroes struggling in Sicily’s harsh environment. Coming from Italy himself, this is not the first time Pennetta has explored themes from his country of origin, achieving success on the international film festival scene.
“Il Mio Corpo is a film that ensnared us with its meditative portrayal of life at the margins of Sicilian society. There is careful specificity to the depiction of these boys’ lives but the broader sweep of its vision is sadly relevant across Europe. We look forward to sharing the film with audiences in the UK and Eire later in the year.” – Louisa Dent, MD of Curzon Artificial Eye
Il Mio Corpo is scheduled for release in theaters and on Curzon Home Cinema on 27 November.
