Maguire’s film a hit at Sundance

The film, in which Maguire plays an unfaithful doctor, also stars Elizabeth Banks, Ray Liotta and Laura Linney.

It’s one of a slew of films that have been picked up by big-deal film companies in the first week of Sundance.

Moguls Bob and Harvey Weinstein have also picked My Idiot Brother, while distribution rights for gritty drama Martha Marcy May Marlene – starring Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen’s little sister Elizabeth – have gone to Fox Searchlight executives.
