Check Entertainment Distribution has announced the acquisition of Sybil Temtchine and Dean Pollack's Audrey a female-driven comedy starring Temtchine in the title role directed by award-winning filmmaker and editor Pollack. Check will release the feature in September. Taking place in real time the story follows a critical hour and a half in a young woman’s day as she waits in a restaurant for her date to arrive.  As the clock ticks away and her date is nowhere to be found the bistro transforms into a heightened reality.  Audrey is swept up into a rich and comical journey as her insecurities and inner demons manifest themselves and wreak havoc upon her.  Forced to face her deepest fears – both real and riotously imagined – Audrey finally finds an inner confidence and strength she never knew she had. Audrey is co-written and produced by Temtchine and Pollack. Richard Bever (Against the Current) and Stephen Israel (Swimming with Sharks) also produce. Veteran filmmakers Ruth Vitale and Effie T. Brown serve as executive producers along with Brian Altounian. “I am so thrilled that Check has picked up Audrey. Richard Gabai president of Check is so passionate about the film and we have a truly amazing team in place. We look forward to an exciting and successful release ” says Temtchine. “This is an extremely difficult market so we have been very careful about selecting films for our release slate that we not only believe in aesthetically but that we truly feel have wide audience appeal ” Gabai says. “We will only get involved in projects we are extremely passionate about and we found Audrey to be absolutely irresistible.”
