In a story from The Hollywood Reporter, Roadside Attractions has picked up the US rights to Mitchell Lichtenstein's comedy Happy Tears.

The film stars Parker Posey, Demi Moore, Ellen Barkin and Rip Torn.

"These are two larger-than-life performances from Parker Posey and Demi Moore as sisters who have a love-hate relationship," stated Roadside company president Howard Cohen.

Lichtenstein went on to say, "This is a tough time for independent film, and I believe that the team at Roadside Attractions knows how to find an enthusiastic audience for this funny, offbeat movie."
