House Lights Media Partners to Distribute Smart Independent Romantic Comedy “Losing Control”
House Lights Media acquires North American rights for multi-platform release of smart, funny romantic comedy "Losing Control" that appeals to all.
LOSING CONTROL is hailed as a great date movie which melds science, drama, romance and comedy therefore expanding the “rom-com” audience by appealing to both men and women. Caramie Schnell, Vail Daily, declared “LOSING CONTROL… isn’t your typical rom-com. It’s a smart and funny film.” LOSING CONTROL was also reviewed as “a high energy, funny film,” by Maddy Kadish, The Independent. The film is being honored with a special screening at the National Academy of Sciences in Washington, DC this fall.
LOSING CONTROL stars Miranda Kent, Reid Scott, Kathleen Robertson, Theo Alexander, Bitsie Tulloch, John Billingsley, Lin Shaye and Steve Howey. LOSING CONTROL was produced and cast by Alyssa Weisberg, CSA, scored by John Swihart and executive produced by Chicago based, Jeffrey Loeb. The negotiations for the project LOSING CONTROL were handled by Glen Reynolds, President, Circus Road Films.
Sandy Moore, Senior Vice President, House Lights Media, enthusiastically claimed “I fell in love with LOSING CONTROL when we juried it for the Feature Film category for the Vail Film Festival. We’re so excited to be working with Valerie and her team, and look forward to bringing the film to the North American Market.” “We are extremely excited to be teaming with Valerie and Jeffrey and feel that it is an outstanding romantic comedy that will resonate with a broad audience across all platforms,” commented Steve Roberts, President, House Lights Media. “It was a dream to get a distribution offer at our festival World Premiere and House Lights Media is as passionate about LOSING CONTROL and its potential to reach a wide audience as we are,” said Valerie Weiss, Writer and Director, Losing Control.
LOSING CONTROL is a fresh and funny independent film that explores the universal idea that, at some point, everyone fears somewhere in their heart, that there is a “right” way to find love, and that they might be going about it the wrong way. It is a smart romantic comedy about a female scientist who wants proof that her boyfriend is “the one.” Evoking a lighthearted and clever tone, LOSING CONTROL is the story of a charmingly neurotic Harvard graduate student whose life doesn’t seem to be working out the way she planned. Frustrated by life’s unpredictability and determined to apply scientific principles to her love life, she sets off on a series of wild dating adventures – a journey that ultimately leads to her understanding that nothing can be controlled and that life is indeed more about the ride than the destination.
