Weinstein picks up ‘Dirty Girl’ at TIFF while critics weigh in


By Sean O’Connell
Hollywoodnews.com: Abe Sylvia’s “Dirty Girl,” a Toronto entry that stars Milla Jovovich, William H. Macy, Mary Steenburgen, Dwight Yoakam, Tim McGraw and up-and-comer Juno Temple, was acquired by the Weinstein Company, the studio confirmed. No word on when the film will be released.

“I am thrilled to be part of such a sexy, edgy comedy that puts a modern spin on a coming-of -age story,” said Harvey Weinstein. “It’s great to be back in business with some old friends and join forces with new and exciting talent and filmmakers.”

He’s referring to Sylvia, who wrote and directed this story a small-town slut (Temple) who gets banished to a remedial class and teams up with an innocent closet-case for a life-changing road trip.

“This is the jackpot in every way. We are elated that The Weinstein Company has so passionately embraced ‘Dirty Girl,’” said Jana Edelbaum and Rachel Cohen of iDeal Partners. “They are the right company to bring it into the world.”

Some who managed to see “Dirty Girl” in Toronto, though, don’t understand what all the fuss is about. Katey Rich, who writes for Cinema Blend, tweeted from TIFF that the film is “mean, unfunny and generally bad.”  James Rocchi declares the film as “inert” and “overly self-satisfied,” but Peter Howell at the Toronto Star admits that the movie “looks to make a star out of newcomer Juno Temple, who makes being bad seem very, very good — but she’s also capable of warmth.”

More on “Dirty Girl” once we learn when it’s coming to theaters.
