“The Hedgehog” finally gets a distribution deal

A quick note, before I rush off to see how well Gwyneth Paltrow sings country: “The Hedgehog,” voted the audience favorite at the Seattle International Film Festival last spring (and my favorite from the festival, too), has finally been picked up for U.S. distribution. Readers have been asking me about this French film ever since SIFF ended, wondering (as did I) why nobody was rushing to bring it to U.S. audiences — it’s based on a beloved novel (“The Elegance of the Hedgehog,” by Muriel Barbery) and has been embraced by audiences around the world. Anyway, it’s been acquired by the distributor NeoClassics Films, and while no Seattle date is set yet, I hear a New York release is tentatively planned for mid-April, which might mean we’d see it here in May. Good move, NeoClassics.
