The spotlight initially shone on “Flora and Son” at the prestigious Sundance Film Festival on January 22, 2023, leaving an indelible mark that sparked a spirited bidding war between entertainment giants Apple and Amazon. Ultimately, Apple secured the rights to the film for an impressive sum, rumored to hover just below the $20 million mark.
Mark your calendars, as this cinematic gem is set to captivate audiences once more at the highly anticipated 2023 Toronto Film Festival on September 7. Following its festival circuit, “Flora and Son” is primed to grace theaters across the United States for a week-long exclusive screening starting on September 22, enveloping audiences in its melodic embrace.
For those who prefer to enjoy their cinematic experiences from the comfort of their homes, the film is poised to make its streaming debut on Apple TV+ on September 29. This eagerly awaited release promises to transport viewers into a world brimming with emotion, harmony, and self-discovery.
