Freestyle Digital Media, the digital film distribution division of Byron Allen’s Allen Media Group, has acquired North American theatrical, VOD, and DVD rights to All Happy Families, the dramatic comedy that premiered at Chicago International Film Festival and at Mill Valley Film Festival last fall and just had its Southern California premiere last night at Dances With Films: L.A. independent film festival. Freestyle Digital Media is planning a fall 2024 limited theatrical and VOD release.

Pic is the story of the Landrys, not the stereotypical Midwestern family. A charming dramedy that stars Fleishman Is in Trouble‘s Josh Radnor as an actor and writer in a slump and still waiting for his big break, whose brother Will (Rob Huebel) is crushing it as a series star. On the weekend before new tenant Dana (Chandra Russell) is due to move into their childhood home, the siblings and their parents find themselves unexpectedly under the same roof again. All the secrets and resentments come to the surface. Cast includes Becky Ann Baker, and John Ashton as the parents. Haroula Rose directed from script she cowrote with Coburn Goss. Pic’s produced by Liz Cardenas, Coburn Goss, Ian Keiser, Haroula Rose, and Mary Muñez. Michael Shannon served as Executive Producer.

Freestyle’s head of digital film distribution Bill Vergos called the film “an amazing and humorous slice-of-life story about family dysfunction in Chicago.”
