Cinedigm, Tribeca Film Team to Acquire U.S. Rights to THE ENGLISH TEACHER

Cinedigm Entertainment Group, a division of Cinedigm Digital Cinema Corp. (CIDM), and Tribeca Film have teamed up to acquire U.S. distribution rights to director Craig Zisk's ("Nurse Jackie," "Weeds") feature directorial debut, THE ENGLISH TEACHER. The film will release in spring 2013 with an ultra VOD and digital window, followed by theatrical release, DVD and broadcast.

THE ENGLISH TEACHER stars four-time Oscar nominee Julianne Moore ("Boogie Nights," "The Hours") who most recently won Golden Globe and Emmy Awards for her lead role in the HBO movie "Game Change." Moore plays a belovEd English teacher whose repressed personal life exists in stark contrast to the passion she brings to the classroom. Her routine is upended when a former star pupil returns to her small town after failing miserably as a playwright. Co-written by Dan and Stacy Chariton, THE ENGLISH TEACHER also stars two-time Tony Award winner Nathan Lane ("The Producers," "The Good Wife"), Oscar nominee Greg Kinnear ("As Good As It Gets," "Little Miss Sunshine"), Lily Collins ("Mirror Mirror") and Michael Angarano ("Ceremony"). The film is produced by Matthew E. Chausse, Naomi Despres, Ben LeClair and Robert Salerno.

"THE ENGLISH TEACHER has everything audiences want in an independent film. It cleverly tells an honest, relatable and extremely funny story of self-discovery and reinvention that pops with great performances," said Vincent Scordino, Vice President of Acquisitions, Theatrical, for Cinedigm. "We're excited to be working with Tribeca and look forward to getting this film in front of as many people as possible. They're going to love it."

"We feel very fortunate to have had such wonderful collaborators in the making of this film, from our talented director and screenwriters to our wonderful cast," said Robert Salerno. "We are now excited to bring the film to its audience, and are thrilled to be partnering with Cinedigm and Tribeca. Their enthusiasm and energy for this film is amazing."

"THE ENGLISH TEACHER is a film about life lessons, taking risks and fulfilling one's dreams, no matter how old you are. In a performance that is at once dynamic, funny and moving, Julianne Moore leads a superb cast in this sparkling debut feature by Craig Zisk," said Geoffrey Gilmore, Chief Creative Officer of Tribeca Enterprises.
