The Toronto Film Festival is a memory and that is usually when buyers gain the decided leverage on movies that didn’t quite match the pre-festival expectations. Maggie’s Plan was one of those, and Sony Pictures Classics just acquired rights in North America and other key international territories. Written and directed by Rebecca Miller, the film stars Greta Gerwig, Ethan Hawke and Julianne Moore. Gerwig plays a single woman determined to have a child by herself. That’s complicated when she steps into a nervy love triangle with a heart-throb academic (Hawke) and his eccentric critical-theorist wife (Moore). SPC also landed rights to the UK, Australia, New Zealand, CIS, Hungary, Romania, China and other Asian territories. CAA and Cinetic brokered the deal.
