Deals. From indieWIRE comes news that IFC Films has acquired Cold Weather, a playful mystery set in Portland, Oregon. Directed by Aaron Katz, the picture debuted at SXSW, where our own Jette Kernion described it as "a charming low-key film spiked with a touch of suspense." My comparison point is Woody Allen's Manhattan Murder Mystery, but Cold Weather is more subtle and visually arresting. The film stars Cris Lankenau and Trieste Kelly Dunn as a brother and sister who team up to investigate the disappearance of an ex-lover. Cold Weather will be available on the IFC in Theaters platform, meaning it can be seen in theaters and on demand at the same time.
Magnolia picked up Night Catches Us and plans to release it in the fall, according to indieWIRE.
