We believe the film will be well-received by audiences worldwide, and it will be a powerful addition to the Miramax library.”Focus CEO James Schamus said:

The picture is taut with nail-biting tension, and spotlights powerful performances from its gifted cast. We are also excited to partner with Miramax and its new team.”
“What was a strong script has become an excellent film – and the kind of terrific thriller that works so well in the international marketplace. Everyone at UPI is proud to be distributing the picture,”said UPI president, international production and acquisitions Christian Grass. Producer Kris Thykier commented,
“We are delighted that Focus and Universal Pictures International have come on board. Their enthusiasm for the movie is palpable, their track record is second to none, and we couldn’t wish for better partners.
