Netflix acquires the worldwide streaming rights to »Tallulah« / First look at the movie in "Meet the Artist '16"

While the 2016 Sundance Film Festival won't kick off until Thursday next week, Netflix didn't wait for the throngs to descend on Park City before making its first major acquisition. Variety reports that the company has purchased worldwide streaming video on-demand rights to Sian Heder's »Tallulah«, which is scheduled to premiere in the festival's US Dramatic Competition category on Saturday, January 23 at the Eccles Theatre. Financial terms of the deal were apparently not disclosed, but insiders pegged the price as being in the mid-seven figures. The theatrical rights, on the other hand, are still up for grabs.

Although it may seem too early for the streaming giant to pick up the dramatic comedy, it's actually a homecoming of sorts for both sides: Heder is also a writer and producer on »Orange Is the New Black«, one of Netflix's most-watched original series.

"Sian Heder is an exciting new voice in cinema and I am so proud to see her work continue from writing on the groundbreaking »Orange is the New Black« to writing and directing this heartfelt crowd-pleasing film »Tallulah«," said producer Russell Levine, CEO of the entertainment finance and production company Route One to Variety. "Audiences worldwide are now going to be able to see Sian’s amazing growth as an artist through the support of Netflix."

Official Synopsis

Young vagabond Lu lives in a van and is fiercely independent in her hand-to-mouth existence. This daily struggle has become tiresome for her privileged boyfriend, Nico, who unceremoniously leaves her one night. When a chance encounter incites her to impulsively “rescue” a baby from a negligent mother, Lu, at a loss for what to do, turns to the only responsible adult she knows: Nico’s unsmiling academic mother, Margo, who believes she’s the child’s grandmother. Thrown together despite differences in class and worldview, Margo and Lu make a lovable, if tense, odd couple. The two are bound to each other as they tentatively form a haphazard family, though Margo has no idea that the police are hot on Lu’s trail for absconding with a child.

In the winsome lead performances, Ellen Page plays the scrappy, free-spirited Lu while Allison Janney’s Margo is equal parts measured and bemused as their characters wrestle, and often clash, over responsibility, motherhood, and their uncertain futures. Writer/director Sian Heder combines warmth, madcap humor, and a deep understanding of human nature in this delightful dramatic comedy about the serendipitous unpredictability of life.
