Writer-director Jeff Lipsky's "Molly's Theory of Relativity" has gone to his new company Adopt Films for US distribution, set for March 2013.

Nick Athas and Inna Braude produced.

Nick Athas and Inna Braude produced.

Lipsky says:

"It was thrilling to able to write for actors ranging from eight to eighty and pure joy to be working again with Reed, Rebecca and Daisy.  Shooting in the New York City is always a plus, particularly with the exceptional crew I had at my disposal, all of whom were major artistic contributors to the cause.”

Adopt Films ("Nuit #1," "The Ballad of Genesis and Lady Jaye") is also releasing four films from this year's Berlin Film Festival; Ursula Meier’s “Sister,” Christian Petzold’s “Barbara,” Miguel Gomes’ “Tabu,” and the Taviani Brothers’ “Caesar Must Die.”
