Isabel Coixet’s ‘It Snows In Benidorm’ scores UK-Ireland deal with Parkland (exclusive)
5 November, 2021
Parkland Entertainment has picked up UK-Ireland rights to Isabel Coixet’s romantic drama It Snows In Benidorm, produced by Pedro and Agustin Almodovar with Esther Garcia.
Spanish sales firm Film Factory Entertainment is selling the title, with BTeam Pictures already confirmed to distribute in Spain.
Timothy Spall stars as a lonely Manchester man obsessed with weather phenomena, who visits Benidorm and teams up with a woman from a burlesque club to find his missing brother.
The film debuted at Valladolid Film Festival in October 2020, and was nominated for two Goyas in Spain this year including best director.
A theatrical release for the first half of 2022 is planned. Parkland recently distributed The Last Bus, also starring Spall, to a total of £430,000 – a record for the distributor since it launched three years ago.
