12. Focus is the US market distributor, they did not greenlight, finanance nor produce the film

 

Bluegrass Films and The Combine were the production entities. Focus is distributor just for the US market. I think the film is going to do quite well in after markets, which is where the action is for films of this size and nature.
I would urge people who support the film, be they DU posters or the director's close supporters, to emphasize the fact that it is a good movie filled with excellent actors which is about a fascinating subject. Emphasis on the importance of the facts it tells is not a winning way to market a narrative film to a wider audience and a terrible choice for trying to motivate a distributor to push harder.
