NEW YORK, June 28, 2013

NEW YORK, June 28, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Today, SOME GIRL(S), starring Kristen
Bell, Adam Brody, Jennifer Morrison, Mia Maestro and Emily Watson, made its
global day-and-date debut exclusively on Vimeo On Demand
(vimeo.com/ondemand/somegirls) and in select theaters in New York and Los
Angeles. Turning down offers for traditional distribution, Leeden Media, the
film's producer, is taking SOME GIRL(S) global just months after its initial
premiere at SXSW 2013.

SOME GIRL(S)' path to viewers through Vimeo On Demand  is a highly-visible
milestone in the growing direct‑to-consumer distribution movement, as
Hollywood and independent creators alike look to bring films to market with
greater speed and flexibility. The film also represents an important
benchmark for Vimeo - just three months since the March 2013 launch of Vimeo
on Demand, the service now offers over 1,400 films, and the broader Vimeo
network now reaches a global audience of over 100MM unique users per month.

"We're very excited to partner with the SOME GIRL(S) team for the day-and-date
release of this innovative film," said Vimeo's CEO, Kerry Trainor."Leeden
Media's decision to release the film direct to fans on Vimeo On Demand is a
great example of how the web empowers creators of all levels to reach
audiences worldwide and maintain control over how their content is sold."

"What we're doing with SOME GIRL(S) right now could not have been possible if
we opted for traditional distribution for the film," said producer, Patty
West, partner at Leeden Media. "When we premiered the film at SXSW 2013, we
heard about Vimeo On Demand -- which debuted at the same time -- and were
immediately drawn to what it had to offer, specifically the full control it
grants and the attractive 90/10 revenue split that all creators are presented
with. More importantly, by shifting gears and going with Vimeo On Demand for
a day-and-date release, we're able to bring the film direct to fans worldwide
on the same day-- ensuring no one has to wait-- and in just a few months
rather than the year that's typically the average following a festival
premiere."

Based on his play by the same name, Neil LaBute's script follows a successful
writer (Adam Brody)who, on the eve of his wedding, travels across the country
to meet up with ex-lovers in an attempt to make amends for past relationship
transgressions. Crisscrossing from Seattle to Boston, he reunites with high
school sweetheart Sam (Jennifer Morrison),sexually free-spirited Tyler (Mia
Maestro), married college professor Lindsay (Emily Watson), his best friend's
little sister Reggie (Zoe Kazan), and "the one that got away" Bobbi (Kristen
Bell). Daisy von Scherler Mayer(PARTY GIRL) directs this journey of a
modern-day Candide stumbling through a landscape familiar to most men -- messy
breakups.

SOME GIRL(S) is available now at (vimeo.com/ondemand/somegirls) and will cost
$5 to stream (rent) and $10 to download (own) with bonus behind-the-scenes
footage.
