Even with the 2013 Sundance Film Festival completed, the dealmaking continues.
Today, Radius-TWC (the video-on-demand/theatrical arm of The Weinstein Company) announced it was picking up North American and French rights to "Cutie and the Boxer," Zachary Heinzerling's sweet documentary about Japanese-born "action painter" Ushio Shinohara and his wife Noriko, who late in life comes into her own as an artist. Heinzerling won the Directing Award in the U.S. Documentary competition.
It was the fifth title Radius-TWC picked up at Sundance this year. It also bought rights to the backup-singer documentary "Twenty Feet From Stardom"; Stacie Passon's sexually charged drama "Concussion"; the porn biopic "Lovelace"; and the documentary "Inequality For All," in which Robert Reich explains the economy.
