BATTLE OF THE SEXES
In Select Theaters SEPTEMBER 22, 2017

Valerie Faris & Jonathan Dayton

In the wake of the sexual revolution and the rise of the women’s movement, the 1973 tennis match between women’s World champion Billie Jean King (Emma Stone) and ex-men’s-champ and serial hustler Bobby Riggs (Steve Carell) was billed as the BATTLE OF THE SEXES and became one of the most watched televised sports events of all time, reaching 90 million viewers around the world. As the rivalry between King and Riggs kicked into high gear, off-court each was fighting more personal and complex battles. The fiercely private King was not only championing for equality, but also struggling to come to terms with her own sexuality, as her friendship with Marilyn Barnett (Andrea Riseborough) developed. And Riggs, one of the first self-made media-age celebrities, wrestled with his gambling demons, at the expense of his family and wife Priscilla (Elisabeth Shue). Together, Billie and Bobby served up a cultural spectacle that resonated far beyond the tennis court, sparking discussions in bedrooms and boardrooms that continue to reverberate today.

TRIBECA FILM AND WELL GO ACQUIRE U.S. RIGHTS TO CHILLING BACKWOODS THRILLER A SINGLE SHOT

Monday, July 1st, 2013

Tribeca Film and Well Go USA Entertainment today announced they have co-acquired U.S. rights to A Single Shot, directed by David M. Rosenthal (Janie Jones), which had its world premiere at the Berlin International Film Festival, followed by a North American premiere at the 2013 Tribeca Film Festival. The film, written by Matthew Jones from an adaptation of his critically acclaimed novel of the same name, stars Sam Rockwell, William H. Macy, Jeffrey Wright, Jason Isaacs and Kelly Reilly.

Tribeca Film and Well Go USA Entertainment will release this summer beginning August 20th on cable video-on-demand platforms, as well as iTunes, Amazon Watch Instantly, VUDU, and Google Play, followed by a theatrical release in major markets nationwide on September 20, 2013.

Rosenthal’s white-knuckle thriller starts with a bang: a single shot, aimed at a lone deer, that hits and kills a young woman. The hunter, John Moon (Sam Rockwell, Seven Psychopaths), watches her die before discovering a box of money near her body. In a desperate panic, he takes the cash — hiring a low-rent lawyer (William H. Macy, Fargo) to fight his wife’s (Kelly Reilly, Flight) divorce suit — and attempts to cover up the killing. But when he discovers that the money belonged to a group of hardened criminals, the hunter becomes the hunted in this tense cat-and-mouse struggle in the backwoods of West Virginia.

“David M. Rosenthal fashions a backwoods thriller with intense performances by a stellar cast of indie stalwarts and eerily beautiful cinematography,” said Geoffrey Gilmore, Chief Creative Officer Tribeca Enterprises. “Festival audiences were riveted by this dark, tense story and we are looking forward to sharing it with a wider audience through Tribeca Film as a day and date release.”

“I am thrilled join forces with Tribeca and Well Go,” said Rosenthal. “I had a great experience with Tribeca releasing my last film and it’s fantastic to once again have such supportive and passionate partners.”

“Tribeca has a long standing track record of excellence and has demonstrated an impressive care for films and filmmakers, so we cannot be happier to be partnering up with them for the release of A Single Shot, a film we are all supremely proud of,” added Keith Kjarval on behalf of the producers.
