Redford's film lands a distributor

Robert Redford's film has been picked up for theatrical distribution

Robert Redford's Abraham Lincoln assassination drama has been picked up for theatrical distribution by Lionsgate and Roadside Attractions.

The two companies aim for a spring 2011 release for The Conspirator, which premiered at the Toronto International Film Festival.

The 20 million dollar production directed by Redford was one of the biggest films to enter the festival without a distributor already in place.

The Conspirator stars Robin Wright as Mary Surratt, a boarding-house owner tried as an accomplice in the assassination by John Wilkes Booth. James McAvoy plays a Union Civil War hero reluctantly forced to defend her.

The film co-stars Kevin Kline, Evan Rachel Wood, Alexis Bledel, Tom Wilkinson and Justin Long.

You could hear some painful things about your behaviour. Instead of getting defensive, be open to changing for the sake of your relationship. Think back to a time when someone you loved worked hard to gain your affection and approval. Pattern your attitude after theirs. Being flexible is more important than being right.More
