LOS ANGELES, May 29, 2020 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Cinedigm Corp (NASDAQ: yea, CIDM) announced today that it has acquired all North American Distribution rights to Cotton Films’ EVERYDAY MIRACLES, a faith based movie starring Gary Cole (“VEEP,” “Entourage”), Erik Smith (A Walk to Remember) and Zoe Perry (”Young Sheldon”).
Written and directed by Marty Madden, EVERYDAY MIRACLES is an inspiring film about a reluctant faith healer named Cotton (Smith) who is taken in by a horse rancher (Cole) and his family after escaping his troubled past. His new life is soon tested when his mother (Lusia Strus) comes to town, disrupting his progress and jeopardizing a possible future with his love interest “Young Sheldon’s” Zoe Perry. But, through his journey, Cotton learns the value of compassion and family through hard work and selflessness.
The film is set to be released in September 2020.
“If there was ever a time that we need stories of hope, this is it,” says Yolanda Macias, EVP, Content Acquisitions, Digital Sales and Studio Relations at Cinedigm. “Films have the incredible power to move and inspire especially in times of trial. EVERYDAY MIRACLES is surely a film that families will enjoy watching together.”
"While we were making this film, we could have never imagined this is the world we’d be releasing it into,” says Madden. “Though, so much seems uncertain now, we hope this film is able to bring some hope and happiness to those who need it most.”
