EXCLUSIVE: Roadside Attractions has acquired U.S. theatrical distribution rights to Finding You based on the book There You’ll Find Me by Jenny B. Jones.

Written and directed by Brian Baugh (The World We Make, I’m Not Ashamed), Finding You is a coming-of-age romantic drama following Finley Sinclair (Rose Reid). After she has an ill-fated audition at a prestigious New York music conservatory, she travels to an Irish coastal village to begin her semester studying abroad. While there, she runs into the dreamy — but gregarious — movie star Beckett Rush (Jedidiah Goodacre), who is there to film another installment of his medieval fantasy-adventure franchise. The two form an unlikely romantic relationship and Beckett goes on a journey of discovery for Finley that transforms her heart, her music, and her outlook on life. In turn, Finley emboldens Beckett to reach beyond his teen-idol image and pursue his true passion. However, when forces surrounding Beckett’s stardom threaten to crush their dreams, Finley must decide what she is willing to risk for love.

And its talented young cast and stunning Irish-seaside setting will make it a wonderful, engaging theatrical experience.”
