“Perfect Endings” follows João, played by Artur Volpi, an aspiring filmmaker, who is thrown into the dating world after breaking up with his boyfriend of 10 years. At a crossroads in both his personal and professional life, he ends up directing amateur erotic films, while finding his way through the confusion of modern romance.

Dark Star Pictures and Uncork’d Entertainment have nabbed the rights for North America, where “Perfect Endings” will have its international premiere at Frameline on June 27.

Mike Repsch, president of Dark Star Pictures, commented: “We are incredibly excited to bring ‘Perfect Endings’ to North America. Daniel Ribeiro has once again crafted a heartfelt snapshot of modern romance and we know that the gay audience will enjoy this entertaining film.”

This marks a second recent collaboration between M-Appeal and Dark Star Pictures, which bought Marcelo Caetano‘s Cannes Critics’ Week title “Baby,” also represented by the agency.

Cinemien will distribute the film across Germany, Austria, Switzerland, Benelux, Poland, Italy and Portugal. Their upcoming releases include Venice 2023 competition title “Woman Of,” by Małgorzata Szumowska.
