Sony Pictures Classics will Ignite U.S. with TIFF's Incendies

Incendies_thumb.jpgSony Pictures Classics has acquired domestic distribution rights to Denis Villeneuve's Incendies at the Toronto Film Festival. The film, which already screened well at Venice and Telluride, follows twins who travel to the Middle East after their mother dies in order to piece together her past. Shocking revelations ensue. It's not as high profile as the last two Toronto deals, but SPC has proven skillful at releasing foreign dramatic thrillers like A Prophet and The Secret in Their Eyes, so expect to hear more about this one down the line.
