Entertainment One Picks Up U.S. Rights to ‘Gabrielle’

TORONTO — Entertainment One is to release Gabrielle, Canada’s contender for the best foreign language Oscar, in the U.S. market.

EOne Films International, which is distributing the French-language drama from director Louise Archambault and Montreal-based producer micro_scope internationally, did the deal for the stateside rights with eOne Films U.S.

The drama about a developmentally challenged woman’s quest for independence and sexual freedom bowed in Locarno, where it won an audience award.

The Quebec film then had a North American premiere in Toronto.

EOne plans a winter release stateside.

The French language romancer stars newcomer Gabrielle Marion-Rivard in a semi-autobiographical role where she performs opposite Alexandre Landry as her lover.

Micro_scope also produced two earlier Canadian best foreign language candidates at the Academy Awards in Philippe Falardeau’s Monsieur Lazhar and Denis Villeneuve‘s Incendies.
