    DVDTOWN reports that the film, which first premiered at the Sundance Film Festival, will be distributed by Paladin. A late March initial debut is planned, with theatrical expansion to follow in early April.

    Home video rights will be handled by National Entertainment Media (NEM).

    ‘We believe that Paladin and NEM, our innovative all media distribution team, will do a terrific job getting the film out to the widest possible audience,’ said writer/director Shana Feste. ‘I am thrilled that Mark Urman’s Paladin and NEM are releasing my first feature as they have demonstrated the sort of passion and commitment to the movie that makes a filmmaker feel in safe hands.’

    The film features the former James Bond star alongside Susan Sarandon as two parents grieving over the death of their son.

    The film served as the opening selection for the 17th annual Hamptons International Film Festival this past October.
