American Zoetrope announced today that it has acquired feature rights to Alysia Abbott’s memoir Fairyland: A Memoir Of My Father.
Fairyland is a coming-of-age story set against the backdrop of San Francisco’s cultural scene in the 1970s and ’80s, both before and after the AIDS epidemic. Abbott’s father, the poet and gay activist Steve Abbott, would later die of AIDS.
“I love the book Fairyland,” said Sofia Coppola. “It’s a sweet and unique love story of a girl and her dad, both growing up together in 1970’s San Francisco. I think it will make an engaging and touching movie on a subject I’ve never seen before.” »
