Strand Releasing has bought the rights to the drama, The Hawk Is Dying.

Julian Goldberger wrote the script and directed the film, which stars Paul Giamatti, Michelle Williams, and Michael Pitt. It's about a Florida auto upholsterer (Giamatti) who attempts to liven up his humdrum life by taming a wild hawk. According to The Hollywood Reporter, he lives with an overweight sister (Ann Wedgeworth) and an autistic nephew (Pitt) and gets involved with an on-again/off-again girlfriend (Williams) who might be involved in the death of one of the characters.

The Hawk Is Dying is scheduled for release next spring.
