Film marks fourth collaboration with the filmmaker and Sony Classics
NEW YORK (NOVEMBER 1, 2016) -
Sony Pictures Classics announced today that they have acquired the
North American and Latin American rights to Academy Award® winning
filmmaker Michael Haneke’s HAPPY END. Written and directed by Haneke,
the French production wrapped in late August.
"All around us, the world, and we, in its midst, blind." The film is a snapshot from the life of a bourgeois European family.
END stars Jean-Louis Trintignant, Isabelle Huppert, Mathieu Kassovitz
and Toby Jones. Huppert and Trintignant both starred in Haneke's AMOUR,
which won the Academy Award® for Best Foreign Language Feature in 2012
and earned four nominations for Best Picture, Best Director, Best
Original Screenplay and Best Actress.
The film is produced by
Margaret Menegoz and co-produced by Stefan Arndt and Dr. Veit
Heiduschka, who previously co-produced AMOUR and WHITE RIBBON together.
