Lesbian Drama Bought at Sundance

Pariah, a coming-of-age film about a 17-year-old black lesbian in Brooklyn, N.Y., was purchased by Focus Features after its screening at the Sundance Film Festival.

The film is about the girl finding herself and learning about her sexuality.

According to The Hollywood Reporter, Focus paid less than $1 million for Pariah. The company has also backed the films Brokeback Mountain, Milk, and The Kids Are All Right, which is currently nominated for four Academy Awards. Sony Pictures Classics and the Weinstein Co. were also interested in purchasing the film.

Pariah stars Adepero Oduye, Pernell Walker, Kim Wayans, Charles Parnell, and Aasha Davis, and was directed by Dee Rees, executive-produced by Spike Lee, and produced by Nekisa Cooper.
