Frequent Sacha Baron Cohen collaborator Dan Mazer has found a home at Magnolia Pictures for his feature film directorial debut, "I Give it a Year."

The co-writer of "Bruno" and "Borat," Mazer premiered his film at this year's SXSW Film Festival. Unlike Cohen's controversial mockumentaries, "I Give it a Year" is a narrative film about the ups and downs of marriage a la Judd Apatow's "This is 40." The comedy-drama stars Rose Byrne (TV's "Damages") and Rafe Spall, who had a small part in 2012's Oscar-winning "Life of Pi," as a married couple in turmoil after their wedding.

Magnolia Pictures will be distributing the comedy in theaters and VOD platforms later this year. Read Indiewire's review from SXSW here, and watch the trailer below.
