Magnolia has acquired North American rights to Icelandic director Hafsteinn Gunnar Sigurdsson’s “Under the Tree.”The comedy follows two neighboring families as tensions mount between them in a tranquil suburb. A giant tree, which casts a looming shadow on one of the neighbors’ properties, is at the center of it. “Under the Tree” stars Steinthor Hroar Steinthorsson, Edda Bjorgvinsdottir, Sigurdur Sigurjonsson, Thorsteinn Bachmann, Selma Bjornsdottir and Lara Johanna Jonsdottir.The Icelandic-language film premiered at the Venice Film Festival and is screening at the Toronto International Film Festival as part of the Contemporary World Cinema section. Magnolia is planning an early 2018 release.
