It looks like The Weinstein Co.'s wallet was burning a hole in their pocket. After watching the widower-drama Grace is Gone, they just had to have it.

Full Price: Sundance's Grace is Gone

During the pre-dawn hours of Sunday, The Weinstein Company has made the biggest sale of Sundance to date with the purchase of Grace is Gone starring John Cusack.

The film tells the story of a stern father (John Cusack) who learns of his wife's death in Iraq. Instead of breaking the news to his young daughters, he takes them on a road trip.

The sale of the film occurred ten hours after it screened; at approximately 4:30 am. John Sloss handled the sale for first-time writer-director James Strouse. According to Sundance, all the big studios screened the film with hopes of acquiring it.

After the credits ran, studios were forced to huddle together and make their best offers for Grace is Gone. The Weinstein Co. came out the victor.

Though not as highly regarded as Little Miss Sunshine, Grace does have its parallels to the film with plot elements such as a disconnected father, a road trip, and the lack of a political agenda.

Stay tuned for updates.
