Magnolia Pictures has acquired the U.S. distribution rights to Dan Mazer's latest film I Give It A Year (2012), starring Rose Byrne, Rafe Spall, and Alex Macqueen. The studio plans to have the film in theaters across the country later this year.
Since they met at a party, ambitious high-flyer Nat (Byrne) and struggling novelist Josh (Spall) have been deliriously happy despite their differences. Josh is a thinker, Nat's a doer...but the spark between them is undeniable.
Their wedding is a dream come true, but family, friend and even the minister who marries them aren't convinced that they can last. Josh's ex-girlfriend, Chloe (Faris), and Nat's handsome American client Guy (Baker), could offer attractive alternatives. With their first anniversary approaching, neither wants to be the first to give up, but will they make it?
I Give It A Year is a brand new comedy from the writer of Borat and Brüno that lifts the veil on the realities of the first year of marriage.
Note: StudioCanal already released I Give It A Year in the UK, France and Germany. Below is a trailer which the company used to promote the film in the UK.
