"I Used to Be Darker"

Strand Releasing has picked up all US rights to Matt Porterfield's Boston-set drama "I Used to Be Darker," which screened at both this year's Sundance and Berlin International film festivals. 

The film will be an upcoming selection at the Sarasota and Maryland film festivals. 

Here's the official synopsis:

When Taryn (Deragh Campbell), a Northern Irish runaway, finds herself in trouble in Ocean City, MD, she seeks refuge with her aunt and uncle in Baltimore. But musicians Kim (Kim Taylor) and Bill (Ned Oldham) have problems of their own: they’re trying to handle the end of their marriage gracefully for the sake of their daughter Abby (Hannah Gross), just home from her first year of college. A story of family revelations, people finding each other and letting each other go, looking for love where they’ve found it before and, when that doesn’t work, figuring out where they might find it next.

Boston native Porterfield, who previously helmed 2011's "Putty Hill," co-penned the script for "I Used to Be Darker" with Amy Belk. The film features live and soundtrack music written by actors Taylor and Oldham, as well as Jack Carneal, Dope Body, Dustin Wong, the Entrance Band, Jana Hunter and Bill Calahan.


Strand plans a fall 2013 theatrical release.
