So thanks to lots of prodding and encouragement from Ryan over at the Matinee, I have got myself tickets to the Toronto International Film Festival. This is something I should have made work years ago given that I live less than 4 hours away. But similar to our weekly movie releases, I thought I'd give you a heads up as to what I hope to see. I can only go for 3 nights and 3 days, so my options were a bit limited. I will probably not review them all, or wait until they come out for everyone - if there's one you'd particularly like a review of, let me know. But here it is:
Jackie - Okay, this one might bite me in the ass because Holly Hunter is pretty hit or miss. But I like her, and the trailer for this intrigued me because most of it is in Dutch. Two sisters travel to the US to meet the mother they've never known, and they go on a road trip together. Who knows?
Ed Burns returns to the family drama concept again. It also stars Connie Britton so I was sold. Yay!
Then the long drive home and back to teaching.
