Rhonda
The film was released by NEW LINE which means CRITERION in Chicago does PPR
on it
The best thing is to know which company released the film and go to correct
source as follows
Criterion- New Line, Fine Line, Fox , Fox Searchlight
New Yorker Sony Classics and numerous small independent companies
like Lot 47 , Think Film Magnolia and others but check by title as they do
not have them all
and of course
SWANK which has most other Current big screen releases
Their are us small guys like Kino, Milestone, Zeitgeist, Cowboy etc

In order to figure out who owns PPR on a new film , you must FIRST determine
which company released it in theaters. Swank is notoriously unhelpful if
they don't own the film. Older films are even more complicated but you
should
ALWAYS begin by knowing who the ORIGINAL releasing company was
