Regent Nabs “Little Traitor” Rights

Regent Releasing has acquired North American distribution rights to writer-director Lynn Roth’s “The Little Traitor” reports the trades.

An adaptation of Amos Oz’s novel “The Panther in the Basement”, the story revolves around the relationship between a British sargeant (Alfred Molina) stationed in Palestine only months before Israel becomes an established state in 1947, and an 11-year-old who wants the British to leave his land.

The film is currently playing at the Palm Springs International Film Festival and will be released theatrically in the Fall.
