Fox to have limited release of Ben Zeitlin film

MUMBAI: Fox Searchlight has decided to give Ben Zeitlin‘s Beasts of the Southern Wild a limited platform release beginning 29 June. The same day, Magnolia Pictures will release Take This Waltz, a film by writer-director Sarah Polley.
 
The director‘s debut feature won the narrative grand jury prize at the Sundance Film Festival last January.


Written by Zeitlin and Lucy Alibar, the film follows a six-year-old girl in a poor southern Louisiana bayou as she struggles to survive with her father south of the levees as the ice caps melt and the seas rise.
 
The film, produced by Michael Gottwald, Dan Janvey and Josh Penn, also won a cinematography award at the Sundance Film Fest where Fox Searchlight purchased the film‘s US rights for around $1 million.
