New York, NY (Top40 Charts) The Orchard has acquired U.S. rights to the jazz-inspired drama THE SONG OF SWAY LAKE. Directed by Ari Gold (Adventures of Power), who co-wrote the film with Elizabeth Bull, the film stars Rory Culkin (Signs), Robert Sheehan (Geostorm) and Mary Beth Peil (Tony nominee for Anastasia). THE SONG OF SWAY LAKE will be released in theaters on September 21st and on VOD and Digital HD on September 25th.

Featuring both original and classic songs, THE SONG OF SWAY LAKE tells the story of a young man (Culkin) who plots to steal a valuable, long-lost jazz record from his grandmother's lake house. His plan is derailed when his accomplice (Sheehan) falls for the matriarch.

THE SONG OF SWAY LAKE was produced by Grack Films' Ari Gold, Michael Bederman (Spotlight), Allison Rose Carter (American Honey) and Social Construct's Zak Kilberg. The film was executive produced by Garrett P. Fennelly (The Tested) and Anne Bernstein (Otis N' Dwayne).

Leading global distributor Kew Media Group launched the film to the international market at the Cannes International Film Festival.

"THE SONG OF SWAY LAKE received strong buyer interest in Cannes," said Jonathan Ford, EVP of Sales, Distribution at Kew Media Group. "Its stellar cast and ultra-high production values set it apart."

Evan Morehouse from The Orchard negotiated the U.S. deal with Benjamin Weiss and Derek Kigongo of Paradigm and attorney Orly Ravid from MSK on behalf of the filmmakers.
