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. The film about "the economy, how we value and measure the pride we take in what we choose to do for a living, the unbreakable bonds of family, and the notion that death is merely a relative thing" stars Sophia Takal, Lawrence Michael Levine, Reed Birney, Daisy Tahan and Rebecca Schull. Nick Athas and Inna Braude produced.

"Molly's Theory of Relativity" is a sexy, funny, surreal, and devastating portrait of a beautiful twenty-eight-year-old astronomer who, having unexpectedly lost her job, is poised to make perhaps the first reckless decision of her life.  Her story unfolds during an eighteen hour period, on Halloween. Providing counsel on the fateful day are her husband, her father-in-law, three deceased relatives, a precocious nine-year-old trick-or-treater, her grandfather from Minot, North Dakota, and a six year old neighbor, who may or may not be imaginary.
