Bleecker Street has taken North American rights to Stephen Daldry’s new comedy, Together, starring James McAvoy and Sharon Horgan which follows two partners who are forced to re-evaluate themselves and their relationship during lockdown. A theatrical release of Aug. 27 has been set with VOD to follow in September.
Dennis Kelly penned the BBC Film, Shoebox Films and Sonia Friedman feature. Producers are Guy Heeley and Friedman.
“Stephen Daldry has brought together two of the most engaging performers to bring to life the story of a family going through what we all went through over the last year,” said Andrew Karpen, CEO of Bleecker Street. “The biting comedy, the never-ending uncertainty and the intense frustration of being stuck in quarantine are at the heart of Daldry’s finely attuned film about the complexity and importance of human connections.”
