18 Jul DEADLINE: Freestyle Acquires North American Rights to Drama ‘Angel’ From Writer-Director, Raeann Giles – Film Briefs
EXCLUSIVE: Freestyle Digital Media has acquired North American rights to the drama Angel from writer-director Raeann Giles. The digital film distribution division of Byron Allen’s Allen Media Group plans to release the pic across VOD platforms on August 9.
In Angel, three thirty-something ladies escape to wine country, drink a forbidden wine, and wake up to an alternate reality of what might have been. When they see what they truly want in life, one of them revisits a past miscarriage, and comes face to face with her traumatic loss. The events of the miscarriage are based off of a true story, and the flashbacks in the film are comprised of real footage from an actual pregnancy loss story. The film hopes to let other women know they are not alone and to abolish the stigma that miscarriages have to be hidden.
Starring alongside Giles in Angel are Angela Relucio (Ozark) and Chelsea Gilson (Hawaii Five-0). The film was produced by Giles and Donald Nguyen. Freestyle Digital Media negotiated the deal to acquire it directly with Giles of Malie Productions and attorney Patrick Alach of Longo & Alach. Watch the trailer for Angel below.
