Weinstein Releases Wild Oats, The Film Artists' Executive Producer Sasha Yelaun.

From the talented Director of Hitch, Sweet Home Alabama, & Fools Rush in, Andy Tennant, Wild Oats opened to 100 screens in select cities on September 16th. The Film Artist’s own Sasha Yelaun is an Executive Producer on the project.



Eva "SHIRLEY MACLAINE", a widow and retired history teacher, enjoys a quiet life in a small town. Everything changes when Eva receives a life insurance check made out for $5,000,000 instead of the expected $50,000. At the not so gentle urging of her best friend Maddie "JESSICA LANGE", Eva deposits the money and they run away to the Canary Islands to experience the glamorous life. However, their fantasy is short-lived. They quickly become fugitives forced to outwit conmen, confront a Spanish warlord, and outmaneuver a dogged insurance agent who has teamed up with Eva’s daughter "DEMI MOORE" to find them.

The Oscar-nominated directors of American Splender, Robert Pulcini and Sheri Berman, skillfully show us on a journey back to the past late 80s CBGB period in Manhattan. Adapted from a best-selling novel, the film has a vintage feel, alongside a very raw and emotional story featuring an ensemble cast including Ethan Hawke, Haile Steinfeld, Emile Hirsch, and Asa Butterfield.

Set in the 1980s, following tragedy, teenage Jude (Asa Butterfield) moves from Vermont to New York City to live with his father (Ethan Hawke) in the punk-fueled East Village. Caught in the chaos of city life, Jude and his friends, Eliza and Teddy (Hailee Steinfeld and Emile Hirsch) embark on a journey of self-realization in a neighborhood on the verge of riots.
