EXCLUSIVE: Sundance Film Festival listings continue to drop. Sony Pictures Classics has acquired worldwide rights to A Little Prayer, which premiered yesterday at the Ray in the US dramatic competition category. The film is directed and written by Angus MacLachlan, who also wrote Junebug.

Tammy (Jane Levy) and husband David (Will Pullen) live a quiet life in Winston-Salem, North Carolina, where they share a house with David’s parents, Bill (David Strathairn) and Venida (Celia Weston). David and Bill work together and have always been deeply involved in each other’s lives. When Bill begins to suspect that David is lost in his marriage, he finds himself caught in a relationship minefield, caught between wanting to protect his kind daughter-in-law and trying to understand his impulsive son. As Bill faces the limits of patriarchal influence, he also faces discouraging patterns of behavior that transcend generations.

The film is produced by Max A. Butler and Lauren Vilchik. WME Independent brokered the deal. This is the second solid deal today for the agency that brokered the Apple deal for Flora and Son, directed by John Carney. The fact that it closed so quickly, within 24 hours of its premiere, shows that the pace of acquisitions is picking up after a slow start to the weekend. There are still many desirable titles and deals to be made.
