Endeavor Content is handling international sales out of the American Film Market. UTA Independent Film Group is handling domestic along with CAA Media Finance.

UTA Independent Film Group and CAA will handle domestic sales, with Endeavor Content taking international.
Set in 1966, Maya Hawke will play Jane, a teen resident of Anchorage, Alaska. When the impossible happens — a flight to Japan carrying The Beatles is forced to make an unexpected stop — all hell breaks loose as the unsuspecting residents are consumed by Beatlemania. Jane devises a plan to lose her virginity to George Harrison, discovering that adventure (and romance) are actually a little closer to home than she thought.
Maya Hawke was most recently seen in Gia Coppola’s feature “Mainstream,” which premiered at the Venice Film Festival, and the third season of Netflix’s “Stranger Things.” Ethan Hawke, who led the 2020 film “Tesla,” currently stars in, co-wrote and executive produced the acclaimed limited series “The Good Lord Bird” for Showtime.
