Amplify announced today that it has acquired all U.S. rights to Sara Colangelo’s acclaimed Sundance drama, “Little Accidents”.
Inspired by Colangelo’s 2010 short of the same name (also a Sundance alum), “Little Accidents” is the story of a small coal town reeling from a recent mining disaster; when tragedy strikes again, its inhabitants’ buried secrets begin to spill out, threatening to unravel the delicate threads that hold the community together. With phenomenal performances from an ensemble cast including Boyd Holbrook, Elizabeth Banks, Jacob Lofland, Josh Lucas, and Chloë Sevigny, “Little Accidents” delivers big for audiences looking for a smart, emotional, and intelligent film that pulls no punches.
“Sara has made a film of true authenticity and accomplishment,” said Amplify’s Logan Mulvey. “We couldn’t be more thrilled to share this film with audiences around the country.”
“We’re incredibly excited to have a home for Little Accidents at Amplify, and thrilled to be working creatively with them to bring our film to a wide U.S. audience,” said Colangelo.
“Little Accidents” is a production of Maiden Voyage Pictures, Archer Gray Productions, TideRock Media, Soaring Flight Productions, and Mindsmack Productions. The film was written and directed by Sara Colangelo, produced by Anne Carey, Jason Michael Berman, Thomas B. Fore, and Summer Shelton, and was executive produced by Chris Columbus, Amy Nauiokas, Eleanor Columbus, Ruth Mutch, Richard Loughran, Kwesi Collisson, Mike Feuer, and Todd Feuer. The deal was orchestrated by Kent Sanderson on behalf of Amplify and by WME on behalf of the filmmakers.
