Emma Roberts, Evan Peters and John Cusack star in the film about Amy, a naive poet that is trying to launch her writing career. Struggling to make ends meet, she takes a job at an upstate New York town's local sex shop called Adult World.
President of Sundance Selects/IFC Films Jonathan Sehring said this about the acquisition.
"Scott Coffey has directed a charming film with a terrific breakout performance from Emma Roberts. We are excited about the filmmaker's shared enthusiasm about bringing this film to audiences as a day and date release."
Producer Justin Nappi also expressed his excitement for the project.
"We're incredibly excited to be in business with IFC Films, a company that has been a home to so many amazing films. To secure a distribution deal that will take Adult World to audiences across North America is a testament to the talent and creativity of Scott and the filmmaking team behind the movie, and we feel incredibly proud about what has been achieved."
