ThinkFilm has picked up North American distribution rights for Down in the Valley, an indie "romantic crime drama" starring Edward Norton and Evan Rachel Wood. The movie is a modern western of sorts, in which Norton (who also produced) plays "a mysterious cowboy type" with a murky past. Wood is a high school kid who is drawn to him; their relationship upsets her suspicious dad (the sheriff), who thinks that Norton is much sketchier than he pretends to be.

Though the film has so far had only a few festival screenings, writer/director David Jacobson has a good reputation (he also wrote and directed Dahmer and Criminal, both of which were well-reviewed, despite being rarely seen), and the only published review I can find makes this effort sounds pretty incredible. ThinkFilm plans to have the film in limited release by spring.
