Gravitas Ventures has acquired the US rights from production company Augenschein Filmproduktion to distribute Franka Potente’s directorial debut, Home.
Starring Jake McLaughlin, the drama tells the story of Marvin Hacks (McLaughlin), who comes home after more than 20 years in prison and soon finds out that his hometown has not forgotten his crime. Despite the confrontation and hostility from the locals, Marvin attempts to win back his place in society and is welcomed back by his shabby, rundown family home.
Kathy Bates, Lil Rel Howery, Aisling Franciosi, Derek Richardson, James Jordan and Stephen Root also star.
Home premiered at the Rome Film Festival last year, followed by Tallinn Black Nights, San Francisco and the Munich Film Festival ahead of its theatrical release in Germany this year. The film will have a theatrical release in 10 cities plus all major cable and digital platforms. It will be released day and date on December 3.
