IFC Films has scooped up TIFF special presentation title "Hateship Loveship," starring Kristen Wiig, Guy Pearce, Hailee Steinfeld, Nick Nolte, Christine Lahti and Jennifer Jason Leigh. 

Directed by Liza Johnson ("Return"), the film is adapted by Mark Poirier ("Goats") from a short story by Canadian author Alice Munro. Here's the official synopsis:

HATESHIP LOVESHIP is a multi-dimensional portrait of a young woman who has a life-altering effect on a fractured family. Kristen Wiig stars as Johanna Parry, a profoundly shy, unadorned woman who is hired by Mr. McCauley (Nick Nolte) as a housekeeper and a primary caregiver to his granddaughter Sabitha (Hailee Steinfeld). When Sabitha uses technology to foster a pseudo-relationship between her widowed father and new caretaker, Johanna is finally able to indulge in something long missing from her life: the dream of a future and a home of her own.

No word yet on a stateside release.
