Grasshopper Film Nabs Berlin Film Festival Pic ‘Fourteen’
Published on Jan 16, 2020
Grasshopper Film has required the U.S. distribution rights to Fourteen, the feature about female friendship from writer/director Dan Sallitt, which premiered at the 2019 Berlin Film Festival. Starring Tallie Medel and Norma Kuhling (NBC’s Chicago Med), the pic is slated for a theatrical release in the spring followed by a digital and home video release.
The story centers on Mara and Jo who, now in their twenties, have been close friends since middle school. Jo, the more outgoing figure, is a social worker who runs through a series of brief but intense relationships.

She too has a transient romantic life, though she seems to settle down after meeting Adam, a mild-mannered software developer.
