Netflix has acquired Audrie & Daisy, the Bonni Cohen- and Jon Shenk-directed documentary film in competition at the Sundance Film Festival. It will premiere globally on the streaming service this year.
The pic tells parallel stories of two teenage girls from opposite sides of the country, both sexually assaulted by boys they considered to be their friends. Harassed online and taunted at school in the wake of their assaults, each girl is driven to attempt suicide.
The pic is produced by AfterImage Public Media in association with Impact Partners and Actual Films. UTA brokered.
