Deadline has learned that Vertical Entertainment has secured the rights in North America to Rodrigo Garcia drama Four Good Days that stars Glenn Close and Mila Kunis. Four Good Days is based on a real story by Pulitzer Prize winner Eli Saslow who wrote this story for Washington Post. The movie follows 31-year-old Molly (Kunis), who begs her estranged mother Deb (Close) to rescue her from the control that heroin addiction has on her in a heartbreaking and unpredictable chronicle of mother and daughter struggling to restore the love and trust that once kept them together.
“We are excited to share the impactful message and impeccable performances by Mila Kunis and Glenn Close in Four Good Days with audiences this spring,” said Rich Goldberg, co-president of Vertical Entertainment. “The film, based on a true story, gives audiences a window into the struggle of a mother and daughter trying to rebuild their relationship after a long battle with drug abuse. The conversation around addiction can be complex and difficult for family members to have, and we strongly feel that audiences, and most importantly families, will empathize with these characters and possibly even open up the discussion about drug abuse with one another.”
The film premiered at the 2020 Sundance Film Festival, and now the U.S. will get the chance to debut the movie in theaters on April 30, which will then be available on-demand on May 21.
