First off The Wackness won the Sundance Dramatic Audience Award. Second it got boufht by Sony Pictures Classic for publishing. But some people are questioning this buy. Because SPC does not have the greatest record of publishing and promoting films.
They were the people behind Youth Within Youth. You propably did not hear of it. Yet it was the latest movie by Francis Ford Coppola. The man behind The Godfather & Apocalypse Now. His last movie was The Rainmaker with Matt Damon and Danny DeVito, 1997. I didn’t even hear about this movie untill I got the Heart Of Darkness dvd.
Hopefully this will get the numbers it deserves. Atleast it has a buyer and will be showing up.
