Tribeca Film has picked up North American rights to the Spanish noir "No Rest for the Wicked," which won six 2012 Goya Awards (Spain's equivalent to the Oscars), including Best Film. The film is currently playing at Fantastic Fest.

Tribeca is scheduling a multi-platform December release for Enrique Urbizu's crime thriller. Aside from nabbing the top award in Spain, "No Rest for the Wicked" has also received glowing stateside reviews, with Variety deeming it "explosive... The kind of movie that gives dramas about bad cops a good name."

Official synopsis:

Santos Trinidad (José Coronado) is a dirty cop with a violent streak and a serious thirst for rum and Coke. During a drunken binge, he murders three people in a bar. A witness escapes from the building before Santos can catch him. While Santos sets out to kill the witness and cover up his crimes, a judge and the police conduct an investigation into the murders. Santos’ hunt for the witness and the parallel police investigation slowly converge to reveal a massive criminal conspiracy that no one involved could have ever anticipated.
