June 16, 2017


FilmRise has acquired the North American distribution rights to Sophie Brooks’ debut feature film, THE BOY DOWNSTAIRS.

Aspiring writer Diana (Zoysia Mamet) returns to New York City after a few years living in London and finds what seems to be the perfect Brooklyn apartment to start fresh. However, on the first night in her home she discovers that her ex-boyfriend Ben (Matthew Shear) lives in the apartment downstairs.

Danny Fisher, CEO of FilmRise said:

“We are thrilled to share Sophie Brooks’ charming feature debut with the world. THE BOY DOWNSTAIRS is a fresh, sincere comedy that we believe audiences everywhere will enjoy.”

Written and directed by Brooks. Dan Clifton, David Brooks, and Leon Clarance produce. Paul Brooks executive produces.

The film had its world premiere at this year’s Tribeca Film Festival and will be released theatrically later this year.
