here! Films, the theatrical distribution and worldwide sales division of here! Networks, has acquired North American distribution rights to I Can't Think Straight, the first feature film from acclaimed and award-winning author-turned-director Shamim Sarif. Regent Releasing will distribute Sarif's two individual feature films in select cities this Fall starting with The World Unseen on November 7th bowing in New York, Los Angeles and Toronto and followed by "I Can't Think Straight," on November 21st which will also bow in New York, Los Angeles and Toronto followed by additional regional markets.

Written, directed, financed and produced entirely by women, "I Can't Think Straight" is an Enlightenment Productions film. Producer Hanan Kattan has again teamed up with Executive Producer Lisa Tchenguiz-Imerman as they did on Sarif's second feature "The World Unseen."

"I Can't Think Straight" is based on Shamim's upcoming third novel, and represented her first time at the helm as director, having begun her studies in directing and film at the Raindance Institute in London. Sarif also served as the screenwriter on the film. Before being able to complete the feature, she started shooting her second film, "The World Unseen," also adapted from her novel of the same name and which has been received with critical and audience acclaim.

In a rare and unprecedented move, Regent will release two films that are written and directed by Sarif, produced by Hanan Kattan and feature international stars Lisa Ray and Sheetal Sheth within two weeks of each other. Both novels on which the films are based will be released in the U.S. and available on Amazon.com to coincide with two films' release in November.

"We are thrilled to bring Shamim's first two accomplished features to broad audiences this Fall and are confident that audiences will enjoy the uniqueness and universality of both of Shamim's films," said Mark Reinhart, West Coast General Manager, EVP Distribution and Acquisitions, Regent.

The acquisition of "I Can't Think Straight" was negotiated by Regent's VP Acquisitions, Quinn Coleman and Enlightenment Films' Hanan Kattan.
