here The article is mostly an indictment of Broad Green Pictures, but buried within, is this excerpt. ( Thanks to @RANetdotcom)
Disappointments include Ramin Bahrani’s well-reviewed real estate thriller “99 Homes” ($1.7 million domestic), Sarah Silverman’s depressive drama “I Smile Back” ($58,000), and Amazon Studios’ Nic Winding Refn horror flick “The Neon Demon” ($1.5 million domestic). “Brain on Fire,” starring Chloe Grace Moretz, debuted at the 2016 Toronto International Film Festival to mostly withering reviews and then sold straight to streaming platform Netflix, with no theatrical release.
The good news for Richard Armitage fans is that thousands of fans will be able to find and see his performance.

Shame for no theatrical release, so I will have to watch it illegally.
Everyone’s in a different position. This way, I may be able to watch it legally. Fingers crossed to see it one way or another. Maybe you can pay for Ocean’s 8 twice,to make up for it.
That I can do definitely. Here cinema tickets range from $2,5 to $9, depending on the day, if it’s blockbuster or not…
there you go.
I think my daughter has Netflix, when will they show it?
Yes, it is better for fans than a limited theatrical release.
