Roadside Attractions has acquired all U.S. and Latin American rights to "30 Beats," yet another 2012 movie based on Arthur Schnitzler's "La Ronde. " Magnolia picked up Toronto Fest's "360," from Fernando Mereilles and Vienna screenwriter Peter Morgan ("The Queen," "Hereafter"), a contemporary drama which connects a circle of relationships. Rachel Weisz, Jude Law and Anthony Hopkins star.

"30 Beats," written, directed and produced by former Pathe head Alexis Lloyd, follows ten characters' sexual encounters during one Manhattan summer heat wave, including Jennifer Tilly, Paz de la Huerta, Vahina Giocante (France), Lee Pace (UK), Justin Kirk, Jason Day (Peru), Thomas Sadowski, Ingeborga Dapkunaite (Lithuania), Ben Levin and Condola Rashad. Lionsgate will handle all non‐theatrical rights (including VOD, DVD, TV in the US and Latin America). Roadside will take the movie out June 1st, day-and-date theatrically and on VOD, well after its French theatrical release March 21st via Latitude 49 and Studio 37.

The film was produced by Molly Conners, Carl Ford and Lloyd and executive produced by Susan Batson, Ronald Guttman and Pierre Lagrange.

Roadside is currently in the Oscar race with true story "Albert Nobbs," starring Glenn Close and Janet McTeer as two Irish women who pass as men, as well as original screenplay nominee "Margin Call," written and directed by J.C. Chandor.  2012 releases include Toronto pick-up "Friends with Kids," starring John Hamm and writer-director Jennifer Westfeldt, and Nicholas Jarecki’s Sundance acquisition "Arbitrage," starring Richard Gere.
