Content has acquired international rights to SXSW’s critically acclaimed 96 Minutes. Inspired by true events, the intense drama is written and directed by Aimee Lagos, winner of many awards including a BAFTA Award for Excellence for her short film Underground.

96 Minutes stars Brittany Snow (Prom Night, Hairspray), Evan Ross (90210, ATL), Christian Serratos (Twilight Series), Jonathan Michael Trautmann and David Oyelowo (Derailed, Last King of Scotland ). Ross won the Jury Award for Breakthrough
Performance at the South By Southwest Film Festival last month.

Produced by First Point Entertainment’s Lee Clay, Perfect Weekend’s Justin Moore-Lewy and Charlie Mason, Katonah Pictures’ Dan Abrams, and Paul Gilreath, the edge-of-your-seat thriller is about a day in the life of four young people caught up in a terrifying carjacking.

“We’re thrilled to be working with Content Media”, Perfect Weekend’s Justin Moore-Lewy said. “96 Minutes is a labor of love for us – a coming-of-age story that tackles tough issues of class divide and themes that audiences around the world can relate to. We have every confidence that Jamie and his team will bring unique opportunities based on their excellent relationships in the international film markets.”
