MPI Media Group just acquired U.S. rights to M.F.A., a critically acclaimed powerful thriller starring Francesca Eastwood in a breakout role. The film, from female director-screenwriter Natalia Leite, takes on the searing current issue of sexual violence on campus. M.F.A will be released domestically this fall under the company’s Dark Sky Films banner.
The film received glowing reviews upon its world premiere at SXSW where I called it “intensely engaging, thought-provoking, and also mesmerizing.”
In the film, “Noelle (Francesca Eastwood; Final Girl, Outlaws and Angels), an art student struggling to find her voice, is sexually assaulted by a fellow classmate. Attempting to cope with her trauma, she impulsively confronts her attacker, leading to a violent altercation that culminates in his accidental death.
“Noelle tries to return to normalcy, but when she discovers she is only one of many silenced sexual assault survivors on campus, she takes justice into her own hands. A vigilante is born – retribution is the inspiration she’s been waiting for.”
