The Wrap reports that IFC Films has acquired from Myriad Pictures the U.S. distribution rights to director Jamie Babbit’s thriller, Breaking The Girls starring Madeline Zima (pictured above), Agnes Bruckner, and Shawn Ashmore.
Written by Mark Distefano and Guinevere Turner, the film was produced by Myriad’s Kirk D’Amico and Andrea Sperling. Peter Abrams and Robert Levy of Tapestry Films serve as executive producers. The film will have a limited theatrical in the U.S.
In the film “Sara is an ambitious, beautiful twenty-year old working her way through her sophomore year at Browning College. Alex, her gorgeous and privileged classmate, takes Sara under her wing. As the two girls become closer, they become friends with benefits. Alex and Sara commiserate over their respective enemies and Alex half-jokingly suggests that they should kill off each other’s nemeses. Sara shrugs off the suggestion as a morbid joke, until someone turns up dead.”
