The Orchard has nabbed North American rights to “State Like Sleep,” a dreamlike thriller that turned heads with its premiere at this year’s Tribeca Film Festival.
“State Like Sleep” is the feature directing debut of Meredith Danluck, who also wrote the script. It stars Katherine Waterston of “Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them” fame, as well as Oscar-nominee Michael Shannon, Luke Evans, Michael Huisman, and Mary Kay Place. The Orchard will release “State Like Sleep” theatrically and across digital platforms this winter.
The film centers on an American photographer (Waterston) who returns to Brussels a year after her husband’s death. While trying to come to terms with her grief, she unearths troubling information about her husband’s final days. To solve the mystery she plunges into the city’s underground club scene.
