                             Works Media Group plc
                            Film Distribution Rights

The Works Media Group plc ('The Works'), the independent film distributor,
announces today that it has acquired UK distribution rights to 'Closing the
Ring', the latest film from Oscar winning and world renowned director Richard
Attenborough. The film is scheduled for theatrical distribution by The Works in
late 2007, before subsequent distribution across other media.

Starring established actors including Shirley MacLaine, Christopher Plummer and
Pete Postlethwaite as well as emerging talent such as Mischa Barton, 'Closing
the Ring' is a moving love story, interwoven between the present day and the
Second World War. The film is set to premiere at the London Film Festival on
21st October 2007.

Norman Humphrey, Chief Executive of The Works commented, 'That we have been
chosen to distribute the latest feature film by such an internationally
respected director as Richard Attenborough is a great testament to our continued
growth and recognition in the sector.   The acquisition of 'Closing the Ring'
further strengthens our rapidly expanding catalogue.   It also falls hard on the
heels of the ongoing theatrical success of another of our films, 'Two Days in
Paris', demonstrating to producers our ability to promote films of the highest
calibre.'
