Windy River: Low Budget Indie is Commercial Hit

The Weinstein Company has always relied heavily on its film acquisitions to fill its yearly slate.

The company’s biggest hit of 2017, “Wind River,” is an example of that model.

Acquired at this year’s Sundance Film Festival, the dramatic thriller, which also played at the Cannes Film Fest (out of competition) has already grossed $32 million after being acquired for $3 million.
