My Old Ass stars Maisy Stella as Elliot, a teen in a small Canadian town who is in her final month of summer before college when her and her friends imbibe in some ill-begotten shrooms. During her trip, Elliot comes face-to-face with her older self, played by Aubrey Plaza, who gives her words of wisdom and a warning: don’t fall in love with a boy named Chad.

“Not since Toy Story 3 wielded its power to reduce grown-ass adults to puddles of tears has a movie been so in touch with the tender feelings associated with leaving home and saying a definitive goodbye to childhood, wistfully contemplating what we take with us and what we leave behind,” reads THR‘s Sundance review.

The film, which counts Margot Robbie’s LuckyChap as a producer, received a standing ovation at its Sundance premiere. This will be the latest team-up for the studio and LuckyChap, having releases Emerald Fennell’s Saltburn last year.

CAA Media Finance negotiated the deal on behalf of the filmmakers.

This is the latest seven figure sale of the 2024 fest, with Jesse Eisenbegr’s A Real Pain going to Searchlight in a $10 million deal and the thriller It’s What’s Inside landing at Netflix of r $17 million.
