Big Star Doc Could Get Theatrical Run

Posted By on Fri, Jan 11, 2013 at 1:19 PM


New York-based indie film distributor Magnolia Pictures announced last night they'd acquired the North American rights to Big Star: Nothing Can Hurt Me, a documentary about the cult-classic Memphis band of the Seventies.

This match-up isn't much of a surprise given that one of the film's producers, Danielle McCarthy, is a publicist for Magnolia, but it's probably good news for local fans who missed the film's two sold-out screenings at last fall's Indie Memphis Film Festival, where the film won the Best Documentary Award. A release from Magnolia says the company plans a theatrical release for the film later this year. Many Magnolia titles — most recently A Royal Affair, Compliance, and 2 Days in New York — get theatrical runs in Memphis, so you would think Memphis would likely be on the itinerary of any kind of run the film gets.
