IFC Films acquires 'Anesthesia' in North America for a release in 2016
IFC Films has acquired North American rights to the Kristen Stewart starrer Anesthesia.
Written and directed by Tim Blake Nelson, the drama also stars Glenn Close, Sam Waterston and Gretchen Mol. UTA had been selling Anesthesia at the Cannes film market.
IFC plans to give the film a day-and-date release in 2016.
The story kicks off after the violent mugging of a Columbia University professor.
The film, which premiered in April at the Tribeca Film Festival, was produced by Nelson, Julie Buck, Josh Hetzler, John Molli and Christopher J. Scott.
