The drama, which features Jessica Biel, Kaya Scodelario, Alfred Molina, and Frances O’Connor, will be hitting theaters later this year.
 
“Francesca Gregorini’s superb Emanuel and the Truth about Fishes is a rare and remarkable work of mixed genres and expectations,” stated Geoffrey Gilmore, Chief Creative Officer Tribeca Enterprises, announcing the acquisition. “A taut surprising and original thriller featuring a career best performance from Jessica Biel and a breakout role by Kaya Scodelario.”
 
“I feel in Tribeca and Well Go I have found the perfect home for Emanuel and the Truth about Fishes. They are true lovers of cinema and I feel strongly that they will reach audiences hungry for unique, innovative work,” said Francesca Gregorini.
 
The Plot:
 
Emanuel (Scodelario), a troubled girl, becomes preoccupied with her mysterious, new neighbor (Biel), who bears a striking resemblance to her dead mother. In offering to babysit her newborn, Emanuel unwittingly enters a fragile, fictional world, of which she becomes the gatekeeper.
