Good news everyone: Sundance Selects has acquired the U.S. rights to “Disorder” (Maryland) which premiered earlier this week during the Cannes Film Festival. Variety is reporting the following story:
Sundance Selects is acquiring U.S. rights to Alice Winocour’s “Disorder (Maryland)” following its world premiere in Un Certain Regard at the Cannes Film Festival.
The thriller with a screenplay by Winocour, stars Matthias Schoenaerts, Diane Kruger and Paul Hamy. It was produced by Dharamsala’s Isabelle Madelaine and Darius Films’ Emilie Tisne.
Schoenaerts plays a French Special Forces soldier hired to ensure the security of Kruger’s character — the wife of a rich Lebanese businessman — at their luxurious villa. Variety‘s Guy Lodge gave the film a strong review, noting “Winocour has the gift of instilling fear at a range of tempos.”
Winocour’s first feature film, “Augustine,” premiered at the 2012 Cannes Critics Week.
The deal was negotiated by Arianna Bocco for Sundance Selects/IFC Films with Indie Sales Company’s Nicolas Eschbach on behalf of the filmmakers.

Every now and then an actor comes along who reminds us of the way movie stars used to be. In the case of Matthias Schoenaerts, who’s registered regular comparisons to Marlon Brando due to his earthy masculinity and brutish physical charisma, it might have something to do with his self-professed focus on just one thing—the work, rather than the trappings of the Hollywood fame game. There are echoes of the brooding old guard in the way Schoenaerts ekes out the truth in his performances. And perhaps it’s that quality, in addition to his rakish, athletic good looks, that has turned the Belgian export from a European cinema fixture to a Tinseltown-worthy leading man in the space of just a few years, and has made us most excited for what’s to come.
Born in Antwerp, Schoenaerts, now 37, was obsessed with soccer and graffiti as a teenager. He made his screen debut in a bit part alongside his father, actor Julien Schoenaerts, in the period drama Daens (1992). And, after starring in a succession of Belgian films, including Loft (2008), the highest-grossing Flemish movie of all time, Schoenaerts broke through to Stateside audiences with two notably visceral performances in 2012. He bulked up to obscene proportions to play a steroid-addicted cattle farmer in Michaël R. Roskam’s Oscar-nominated Bullhead, and hit the gym and the junk food once more to play Ali, a single father and mixed-martial-arts fighter gone to seed on the Côte D’Azur, in Jacques Audiard’s art-house sensation Rust and Bone.
The official schedule for the 2015 Cannes Film Festival has been announced earlier today. Matthias’ upcoming movie “Maryland“, previously “Close Protection“, will have it’s premiere screening on May 16th. The current reported running time is 1h41. No word yet if Matthias will attend the premiere. The festival runs from May 13-24 and be sure to head over to the official website for more information.
