Pacific Northwest Pictures has acquired all Canadian rights to Ten Thousand Saints, an American coming-of-age drama from writer/directors Robert Pulcini and Shari Springer Berman.
The film premiered at last year’s Sundance Film Festival, and was recently released stateside by Screen Media. Ten Thousand Saints
tells the story of a teen named Jude who is sent to live with uncle in
New York City in the late 1980s, and dives deep into the city’s punk
scene. Pacific Northwest will be releasing the film in Canada this
spring, starting with an exclusive engagement at The Globe theatre in
Calgary on April 1, followed by a run at the Mayfair Theatre in Ottawa
on April 8.
Ten Thousand Saints stars Ethan Hawke, Hailee Steinfeld,
Emile Hirsch, Emily Mortimer, Asa Butterfield and Julianne Nicholson.
The film is produced by Maven Pictures, Archer Gray and Luca Borghese,
in association with Bad Medicine Films, Raptor Films and Tashtego Films.
Producers on Ten Thousand Saints are Anne Carey, Amy Nauiokas,
Borghese, Trudie Styler and Celine Rattray. Executive producers are
Charlotte Ubben, Springer Berman, and Pamela Hirsch.
