    NEW YORK, NY - DECEMBER 6, 2013 - Adopt Films is proud to announce the DVD release of Sister, a film by Ursula Meier and starring Léa Seydoux (winner of the Palme d'Or at the 2013 Cannes Film Festival for Blue is the Warmest Color), Kacey Mottet Klein, Martin Compston and Gillian Anderson (The X-Files). The film, which was a Silver Bear Winner at the 62nd Berlin International Film Festival in 2012, tells the story of Simon, a young boy forced to provide for his older sister through petty theft, and who finds himself slipping into more and more dangerous activities in order to make ends meet.

    The DVD will become available on December 31st with a SRP of $29.95.

    Simon (Kacey Mottet Klein) lives with his older sister (Léa Seydoux, Blue Is the Warmest Color) in a housing complex below a luxury Swiss ski resort. With his sister drifting in and out of jobs and relationships, twelve-year-old Simon takes on the responsibility of providing for the two of them. Every day, he takes the lift up to the opulent ski world above, stealing equipment from rich tourists to resell to the local kids down in the valley. He is able to keep their little family afloat with his small-time hustles and his sister is thankful for the money he brings in.

    But, when Simon partners with a crooked British seasonal worker, he begins to lose his boundaries, affecting his relationship with his sister and plummeting him into dangerous territory.
