According to sources at Variety, Netflix has snapped up worldwide streaming video on-demand rights to Tallulah.


The movie – starring Ellen Page as a young drifter who takes a baby from a negligent mother – is expected to be a Sundance Film Festival hit.

The film reunites Page with her Juno co-star Allison Janney – who plays a woman who mistakenly believes she’s the child’s grandmother in what is being billed as a dramatic comedy.

Tallulah was created by writer and director Sian Heder, who previously worked as a writer and producer on Netflix’s Orange is the New Black.

Heder moved on to make the her first short film, Mother, which was honoured at Cannes Film Festival, Seattle International Film Festival and Florida Film Festival.

The purchase comes as Netflix is moving aggressively to build up its feature film offerings, having scored by backing original television shows such as House of Cards, Daredevil, and Jessica Jane.

Upcoming movies include War Machine with Brad Pitt, Jadotville with Jamie Dornan, and a sequel to Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon.
