Vertical has secured US rights to the romantic comedy She Came to Me which had its world premiere at Berlin Film Festival 2023 and opened the first night of the fest. Directed and written by award-winning filmmaker Rebecca Miller (Maggie’s Plan, The Private Lives of Pippa Lee, Personal Velocity), the film stars Emmy Award-winning Peter Dinklage (Game of Thrones), Academy Award-winning Anne Hathaway (Ocean’s 8), and Academy Award-winning Marisa Tomei (Spider-Man: No Way Home), Joanna Kulig (Kompromat), Brian d’Arcy James (West Side Story), Harlow Jane (Dig), and Evan Ellison (Devil in Ohio) round out the cast.

Vertical is planning a theatrical release with the date yet to be determined.

A comedy about love in all its forms set in the bustling metropolis of New York City, She Came to Me follows Steven Lauddem (Dinklage), a composer who is plagued by a creative block that leaves him unable to finish the score for his big comeback opera. When his former therapist-turned wife Patricia (Hathaway) suggests he rekindle his creativity by getting lost in the city, Steven sets out in search of inspiration. His epiphany comes after he meets a spirited woman named Katrina (Tomei) and discovers his life has much more potential than he bargained for, or ever could have imagined.

The film is produced for AI Films by Damon Cardasis and Rebecca Miller (Round Films), Pamela Koffler and Christine Vachon (Killer Films), Len Blavatnik (AI Films), and Anne Hathaway (Somewhere Pictures). The film’s executive producers are Danny Cohen, Amanda Ghost, and Vince Holden; Cindy Tolan and Ged Dickersin are the film’s co-producers. Sam Levy is the cinematographer and Bryce Dessner (The Revenant) is the composer. The film features an original new song by Bruce Springsteen, “Addicted to Romance,” which was heard by audiences for the first time during the Berlin World Premiere.

Vertical Partner Peter Jarowey commented, “After experiencing the film’s remarkable debut at Berlin, we were left in awe of its impressive cast and masterful storytelling. We’ve admired Rebecca’s work for many years and are thrilled to finally get to collaborate with such a talented group of filmmakers to bring the cinematic gem that is She Came to Me to audiences nationwide.”

Added the producers, “We’re thrilled to have Vertical as our distribution partners in the US. Their heartfelt passion and belief in the film makes them the perfect home to bring Rebecca’s moving, funny and unique movie to audiences.”

Jarowey and SVP of Acquisitions Tony Piantedosi negotiated the deal on behalf of Vertical, while CAA Media Finance negotiated on behalf of AI Film.
