Oscilloscope Laboratories has scooped up North American rights to director Jeff Preiss' jazz biopic-of-sorts "Low Down," starring John Hawkes, Elle Fanning, Glenn Close and Peter Dinklage. 

In this winner of the Sundance Film Festival's Best Cinematography award, Hawkes plays modern American jazz pianist Joe Albany. "Low Down" unfolds through the eyes of his daughter Amy-Joe, played by Elle Fanning, as she watches her father succumb to heroin addiction amid the emerging jazz scene of the '60s and '70s. 

Notably, Amy-Jo Albany (also an EP) cowrote the screenplay with Topper Lilien. "Low Down" was produced by Albert Berger and Ron Yerxa of Bona Fide Productions, and Mindy Goldberg of Epoch Films. The film is heading to New York's BAMcinemafest in New York in June.

Reviews are split, but comparisons have been drawn to "Requiem for a Dream" as a harrowing portrayal of addiction. The cast, alone, should make this a must-see.
