Benecio del Toro, Mathieu Amalric in 'Jimmy P.'

IFC Films has taken US rights to Arnaud Desplechin's "Jimmy P," which premiered to very mixed reviews at Cannes in May. The film stars Benicio Del Toro as Jimmy Picard, a Blackfoot Indian overcome by psychological stress after fighting in World War II.

Mathieu Amalric co-stars as Georges Devereux, an anthropologist analyzing Jimmy's mental state and behavior. The film, co-penned by Desplechin and NYFF director of programming Kent Jones and Julie Peyr, is based on the real-life Devereux's book, "Psychotherapy of a Plains Indian."

This is French helmer Desplechin's first film since his brilliant 2008 family drama "A Christmas Tale," also starring Amalric, along with Catherine Deneuve and Emmanuelle Devos, among many others.  

IFC is eyeing an early 2014 release.
