Even before its Sundance premiere, we postulated that An Education would be a great fit for Sony Pictures Classics and predicted a sale in the neighborhood of $4 million.
We called it. SPC picked it up in a roughly $4 million buy. Emboldened, we'd now recommend that Lionsgate take a look at Push: Based on a Novel by Sapphire. Work that Tyler Perry circuit, get assured spots on Oprah and The View, and thank us later (a supporting actress campaign for Mo'Nique would be payment enough).
