Tribeca Film Acquires ‘The Time Being’ With Frank Langella and Wes Bentley

Directed by Nenad Cicin-Said, this mystery drama celebrated its world premiere at the Toronto International Film Festival.

We’re happy to announce that Tribeca Film recently acquired the North American rights to The Time Being starring Wes Bentley (American Beauty, The Hunger Games) and Oscar nominee Frank Langella (Frost/Nixon, The Box).

Directed by Nenad Cicin-Said and co-written by Cicin-Sain and Richard Gladstein, The Time Being follows Daniel (Bentley), a young painter struggling to support his family, as he deals with another failed gallery exhibition. A mysterious benefactor (Langella) takes an interest in Daniel and asks him to perform a series of odd tasks that make no sense to the desperate artist. The film goes on to explore the murky relationship between two men, along with the uncertainties of marriage, parenthood and friendship.

Featuring a strong supporting cast of Corey Stoll (Midnight in Paris), Sarah Paulson (“American Horror Story”), and Ahna O’Reilly (The Help), the film will be available on VOD and digital platforms on July 23 and July 26 in select theaters.
