British distributors New Wave Films announced today that they have acquired acclaimed Turkish director Nuri Bilge Ceylan's latest film Winter Sleep (2014), starring Haluk Bilginer, Melisa Sözen, and Demet Akbag. The distributors plan a theatrical release later this year, which will be followed by a Blu-ray release.
Synopsis: Aydin, a former actor, runs a small hotel in central Anatolia with his young wife Nihal with whom he has a stormy relationship and his sister Necla who is suffering from her recent divorce. In winter as the snow begins to fall, the hotel turns into a shelter but also an inescapable place that fuels their animosities. (Synopsis courtesy of Cannes Film Festival).
