CATEGORIES Drama, Independent, Romance, Deals, Mystery & Suspense, ThinkFilm, Distribution, Cinematical Indie, Movie News, CinematicalThinkFilm has picked up North American distribution rights for Down in the Valley, an indie "romantic crime drama" starring Edward Norton and Evan Rachel Wood. The movie is a modern western of sorts, in which Norton (who also produced) plays "a mysterious cowboy type" with a murky past. Wood is a high school kid who is drawn to him; their relationship upsets her suspicious dad (the sheriff), who thinks that Norton is much sketchier than he pretends to be.
Though the film has so far had only a few festival screenings, writer/director David Jacobson has a good reputation (he also wrote and directed Dahmer and Criminal, both of which were well-reviewed, despite being rarely seen), and the only published review I can find makes this effort sounds pretty incredible. ThinkFilm plans to have the film in limited release by spring.
