As Gere's character struggles with homelessness he also tries to reconnect with his estranged daughter Maggie (Jena Malone).
"Time Out of Mind is for me 10 years in the making and is certainly one of my most personal films," Gere said in a statement. "Oren and I can think of no better partner than IFC to support and embrace our film."
"Richard Gere gives a career-topping performance in this beautiful, moving and soulful film from Oren Moverman," IFC Films president Jonathan Sehring stated.
Gere produced the movie alongside Lawrence Inglee, Caroline Kaplan and Edward Walson of Blackbird Films, Miranda Bailey of Cold Iron Pictures and Bill Pohlad of River Road Entertainment. Ben Vereen, Kyra Sedgwick and Steve Buscemi also star.
