"Emanuel and the Truth About Fishes"

Tribeca Film and Well Go USA have announced the co-acquisition of North American rights to Francesca Gregorini's psychological thriller "Emanuel and the Truth About Fishes," which stars Jessica Biel and Kaya Scodelario ("Wuthering Heights"). The film premiered at Sundance in January.

In the film, a troubled teen girl (Scodelario) becomes fixated on her neighbor (Biel), who bears a striking resemblance to her dead mother. Alfred Molina ("An Education") and Frances O'Connor ("The Importance of being Earnest") also star. The Sundance program notes for the film describe it as "vacillating between surrealism and realism," as Scodelario's character enters a dreamlike, uncanny world.

Gregorini's previous feature was "Tanner Hall," starring a then-unknown Rooney Mara. The director describes originally writing the "Emanuel" script for Mara, because both she and the actress were "out of a job" following the "Tanner Hall" wrap.

Tribeca and Well Go plan a late 2013 theatrical release, along with on-demand platform availability.
