YOUTH: Michael Caine, Rachel Weisz Jane Fonda, Harvey Keitel and Paul Dano

“Youth,”  Michael Caine, Harvey Keitel

Fox Searchlight Pictures Presidents Stephen Gilula and Nancy Utley announced today that the company has acquired North American rights to YOUTH, starring Oscar winner Michael Caine, Oscar winner Rachel Weisz, Oscar winner Jane Fonda, Academy Award nominee Harvey Keitel and Paul Dano. The film is written and directed by Paolo Sorrentino, director of Italy’s Oscar foreign language winner THE GREAT BEAUTY, and produced by Nicola Giuliano, Francesca Cima, Carlotta Calori for Indigo Film in collaboration with Medusa Film. YOUTH is coproduced by Fabio Conversi for Barbary Films, Jérôme Seydoux for Pathé, Stephen Woolley, Elizabeth Karlsen for Number 9, David Kosse for Film4, and Anne Walser for C-Films. YOUTH will premiere at the Cannes Film Festival and is scheduled to be released in 2015.

“I’m delighted and proud that Fox Searchlight has acquired my new film: Youth. As a movie lover, I have always appreciated Fox Searchlight’s choices which have given us the opportunity to see beautiful and unforgettable films. This time, as the auteur, I am honored with the faith they have placed in me and the film,” said Sorrentino.

“Paolo’s masterful film projects an extraordinary wisdom and grace. Anchored by Michael Caine’s emotionally riveting performance and buoyed by an exceptional supporting cast, YOUTH is, simply put, a film about life and living told in the most cinematic of terms,” said Utley and Gilula.

“I am very happy that Fox Searchlight has picked up Youth. To secure a North American distribution with such a prestigious company, which always chooses and promotes its films with the utmost care, is a very important signal for Italian Cinema,” said producer Giuliano.

From Paolo Sorrentino, the director of Italy’s Oscar foreign language winner THE GREAT BEAUTY comes YOUTH, about two longtime friends vacationing in the Swiss Alps. Oscar winning actor Michael Caine plays Fred, an acclaimed composer and conductor, who brings along his daughter (Rachel Weisz) and best friend Mick (Harvey Keitel), a renowned filmmaker. While Mick scrambles to finish the screenplay for what he imagines will be his last important film, Fred has no intention of resuming his musical career. The two men reflect on their past, each finding that some of the most important experiences can come later in life.

The deal was brokered by Fox Searchlight’s Senior Vice President of Acquisitions & Co-Productions Ray Strache and Executive Vice President of Business Affairs Megan O’Brien with Muriel Sauzay, Pathe’s Executive Vice President International Sales, who represented the film.

Fox Searchlight Pictures is a specialty film company that both finances and acquires motion pictures. It has its own marketing and distribution operations, and its films are distributed internationally by Twentieth Century Fox. Fox Searchlight Pictures is a unit of 21st Century Fox.
