A24 has been one of my favourite new distributors to emerge in the past few years. The company was founded back in 2012 and made its first appearance with Roman Coppola’s A Glimpse Inside the Mind of Charles Swan III. Since then, it has released more than a dozen movies, and made a huge name for itself on the festival circuit, acquiring some very high-profile projects. The label has announced that it’s acquired John Maclean’s 19th century Western thriller, Slow West, ahead of the film’s premiere at Sundance 2015, as well as Adam Smith’s crime drama, Trespass Against Us, both starring Michael Fassbender.
Recently announced as part of the initial line-up for Sundance 2015, playing in the World Cinema Dramatic Competition, Maclean’s New Zealand production Slow West revolves around the young Kodi Smit-McPhee (Dawn of the Planet of the Apes) and Fassbender.
Set at the end of the nineteenth century, 16-year-old Jay Cavendish journeys across the American frontier in search of the woman he loves. He is joined by Silas, a mysterious traveler, and hotly pursued by an outlaw along the way.
