Director Ruba Nadda returns to the 2014 Toronto International Film Festival with her latest film, October Gale, a psychological thriller starring Patricia Clarkson, Scott Speedman and Tim Roth.

Clarkson stars as a doctor who finds a wounded man, played by Speedman, at her cottage, but it’s not long before she discovers that someone is hunting her mystery man, and they will have to escape together to survive.

October Gale premieres at the Winter Garden Theatre on Thursday, September 11 at 8:00 PM, and then screens again on Friday, September 12 at 9:15 AM at TIFF Bell Lightbox, Cinema 2.

Nadda is certainly no stranger to TIFF, with October Gale marking her third time at the festival after Cairo Time in 2009, and Inescapable in 2012.

Watch a clip from October Gale featuring Clarkson and Speedman:

The Canadian National Exhibition is all about food trucks this weekend, as some of the city’s best mobile purveyors or great eats come together in one place from August 22 to 24, just beyond the Princes’ Gates on the Exhibition grounds.

Dozens of food trucks have been dishing from their unique menus since Friday, taking some of the crowds away from the CNE’s food building with sweet and savoury treats including burgers (South St. Burger Co.), pulled pork and brisket (Hogtown Smoke), churros (I Love Churros), corn (CORNehCOPIA), and even special combinations like Pad Thai fries (Fidel Gastro’s).

Some of the other trucks at the CNE until Sunday are: Bacon Nation, Blue Donkey Streatery, Busters Sea Cove, Food Dudes, Frankie Fettuccine, Gourmet Gringos, The Meatball Shoppe, Nazca, Pappas Greek “On Wheels”, Randy’s Roti & Doubles, Sandwiches with a Twist (S.W.A.T.), Tang’s Burger, Texas Tornado, The Urban Smoke, and Yogurty’s.

To test things out, since we didn’t have a lot of food truck experience, my family and I picked up a range of dishes, including meatballs, pulled pork and brisket, fish tacos from Gourmet Gringos, french fries, and then churros and frozen yogourt for dessert. Everything was delicious, but the brisket from Hogtown Smoke was phenomenal, and the fish tacos left me with a smile on my face and wanting more, despite my happily full stomach.

For dessert, I’ve had the churros from I Love Churros before, but they never fail to satisfy, and Yogurty’s was good, just like in their stores, but there were only a few topping options. They did have a few frozen yogourt flavours at least.

My only complaint is that the food trucks are only at the CNE for three days, and that’s not a lot of time, especially when their food is so good. The location for the food trucks is perfect, since it offers an alternative to the Food Building, while also being nicely positioned on the east side of the Ex.

Since the City of Toronto is not really going out of its way to make room for food trucks, this would have been a great opportunity for the CNE to show off the city’s amazing food trucks for a lot longer than three days. The only thing missing is definitely some seating options for food fans, but there are spots to sit in the grass and on benches behind both rows of the trucks.

The food trucks will be at the CNE today, Saturday, until 11:00 PM tonight, and on Sunday from 10:00 AM until 11:00 PM.

It’s not every day that you get a surprise call from Edward James Olmos, but last week, that’s exactly what happened when the film, television, and stage star called me up to talk about his upcoming appearance at Fan Expo in Toronto, and his long-running career.

Casual, charming, and relaxed when I spoke to him, Olmos talked about what it’s like meeting with his fans at conventions, and some of the projects that’s coming up next for him as well. Most of all, he talked about how much love and respect he gets from fans who are eager to talk about his roles in shows likes Battlestar Galactica, Dexter, Miami Vice, and of course, his memorable appearances in film, including as Gaff in Blade Runner.

Fans can meet Edward James Olmos at Fan Expo next week at Metro Toronto Convention Centre in Toronto, which runs from August 28 to 31.


Question: What motivates you to meet with the fans at all of the events that you come out to?
Edward James Olmos: “Just to say thank-you. When I really did the very first one I realized that it was a real love fest.”

“I haven’t been doing it that long, but I will say that I didn’t do any during [Battlestar Galactica]. I was working and I never did ‘em, but after the show ended is when I went to one, and I really realized what this was all about, and I really ended up appreciating whenever I can go to them to say thank-you to the fans. Most of the time I just–most of the people come up and shake my hand and say thank-you. Sometimes they might want to get an autograph or take a picture, but mainly it’s about sitting there, meeting people, and talking, laughing; it’s a real love-fest from the beginning to the end. It’s amazing.”

Q: Do fans have stories that they tell you when they come up to talk about your shows? Especially ‘Battlestar Galactica’?
EJO: “Oh, certainly. Yeah, there are a lot of families which started around Battlestar. A lot of people say, ‘I met my wife–we met and the first night we went out we watch a segment of Battlestar, and we were hooked and we watched it all together over the five-year period.’ It’s been amazing.”

“People enjoy them–they really enjoy them. Every single area deserves to have their convention–it’s just beautiful.”

Q: Do people also talk to you about ‘Miami Vice’? Growing up, when I think of you, I definitely think of ‘Miami Vice’.
EJO: “Yes. I mean, a lot of people come up and they talk about Miami Vice, they talk about American Me, they talk about Stand and Deliver, they talk about Blade Runner, Battlestar, for sure Dexter and, you know, the things that people have really enjoyed. And they all tell me their feelings and their stories, and they ask me questions, and it’s a love-fest. We just sit there and say thank-you to each other.”

Q: When you look at new work, how often do you consider what fans will think about it, or is it really just about the project itself?
EJO: “It’s a story. I think that every film that I’ve done, except for maybe two in my entire career, have not been done out of a passion for the story. Every single thing except for maybe the Green Hornet and Two Guns–they were done to help friends. Denzel Washington is a friend and Seth Rogen asked me to do Green Hornet. He said, ‘My mother loves you. She watches all the Battlestars, and I have to have you in my film,’ so that’s how I got onto that one.”

Do you prefer any particular genre to another these days? Film over television, or television over film?
EJO: “Oh, no. They’re both great means to tell the story, as is theatre. I just tell stories–I’m a storyteller, that’s about it.”

Are there any characters left that you want to touch on these days? Someone you’ve always wanted to play?
EJO: “I’m playing King Lear, well hopefully. That will be a lot of fun. It’s a little different. It’s contemporary, but it will be something you are really, really going to appreciate.”

Do you have projects coming up next that you can tell us about?
EJO: “We have a film coming out after the first of the year, probably February or March, and it’s an animation film. It’s a co-production between the United States and Mexico, and it’s really quite interesting. It’s a simple story. It’s for kids–it’s a real children’s animation film, not an adult film that children can see [laughs]. Most of Pixar’s stuff is that way. It’s called El Americano: The Movie.

Don’t be confused this week if you hear that Zoe Kazan seems to be starring in two romantic comedies that both star Daniel Radcliffe. In Canada, there’s The F Word, and in the United States the film was released as What If, but they’re the exact same film. No matter what name you want to call it though, Kazan is one charming leading-lady.

Directed by Michael Dowse and written by Elan Mastai, The F Word stars Radcliffe as Wallace, an average, funny, and slightly awkward guy who thinks he’s found the perfect woman until he realizes she just wants to be friends. Kazan of course plays the love interest, Chantry, but even though most of the film follows the formula of the average romantic comedy, it’s much more clever than that, and it’s set in what I can only call an idealistically beautiful, and romantic, Toronto.

For Kazan, taking the part was what she called “a complete no-brainer”.

“They just offered me the part, which is something very nice to have happen to you,” Kazan said. “They had seen my work in Ruby Sparks and they liked what they saw. So that’s how I came to this movie, and it was a complete no-brainer for me; just to get to work with Daniel [Radcliffe], and I had loved Goon, which I had just seen at the time, and I thought that Elan’s [Mastai] script was so funny and good. I don’t know, it was just a really easy choice to make.”

Speaking about Chantry, Kazan explained one of the things that she wanted to capture in her performance, and that happened to be the character’s integrity.

“I liked how moral she was,” Kazan said. “Her morality, I think, is a big part of her self-perception, which it’s not really for me. I’m not saying that I’m an immoral person, but it’s not central to how I think of myself.”

“I think of myself as being empathic and imaginative, and there are a lot of other words that would spring to mind, but moral isn’t really one of them,” Kazan explained. “I liked that that was such a huge part of how she thought of herself and that was thrown so much into question for her by this situation that she finds herself in. I just thought that was so interesting.”

Once she was acting alongside Radcliffe, there was a particular dynamic that Kazan realized she both wanted to capture, but one that she discovered might have been a losing battle next to her co-star.

“Well, [Daniel] was really making me laugh a lot,” she said. “I think he’s really funny, which is something that most people don’t know about him from his previous work. So, I found myself charmed by him.”

“One of the things that I talked to Elan, our writer, about before–and to Michael Dowse, our director–I had talked to them about how I didn’t want her to be, like, an easy laugh. You know, that part of their humour between them and in the script I felt that it was a kind of like one-upping to try and make each other laugh–like you be the one who breaks. And he just always won. You know, so my best intentions was to not be an easy pushover, were thwarted by Daniel,” Kazan said.

Watch the full interview below to hear Kazan’s thoughts on filming in Toronto, and the role that Toronto plays in the story. The F Word opens across Canada on August 22, and in the United States the film already premiered under the title What If.

The Canadian National Exhibition hosted a preview event last week for media before the annual festivities kicked off on August 15, and while the dancers, rides, performers, games, concerts, and everything else at Exhibition Place are a lot of fun, it’s hard to beat the Food Building’s lineup.

Saving the best for last, media got a tour of the grounds that included a wide range of what’s happening this year at the CNE. Before the event kicked off there were churros and coffee from I Love Churros, which were delicious, followed by a demonstration of some of the dancers who are on the President’s Choice Financial International Stage. Dancers included the Mexicans Folk Ballet, Ijo Vudu African Dance Company, and Samba Heat.

After that, the hard-to-top Flying Wallendas performed on the highwire in what I can only call fairly intense winds, which didn’t seem to bother them at all.

Media then had a tour of the CNE’s new Northern Comfort Saloon, which offers a new country vibe that includes concerts and line-dancing, not to mention a mechanical bull, and it’s all housed under a giant tented space near the casino on the western side of the grounds.

And finally, before checking out the samples from the Food Building, performer Paz showed off a bit of his Hockey Circus Show by entertaining the crowd before he juggled flaming hockey sticks on top of a hockey net. It’s the kind of show you have to see to believe, and on top of being funny, he was a fantastic performer.

Let’s talk about the food though, because as much as the entertainment at The Ex is always excellent, the Food Building offers some of the best entertainment with their wonderful and often weirdly perfect food combinations.

The foodies at Eative are offering nitrogen sorbets this year, which are essentially fruit juices that had been frozen down using blenders and nitrogen. Coco’s Fried Chicken is offering deep-fried chocolate chicken that’s served with a chocolate ketchup that has a fantastic little sweet kick that is delicious–the combination of cocoa and juicy chicken is actually more perfect than most people might realize and the ketchup adds the right flavour to the mix.

Then there’s the Chunky Cheese Cafe which has a tangy, sweet and salty grilled cheese called The Chunky Elvis which mixes together bread, cheddar cheese, bacon, peanut butter and bananas. Elvis’ genius never seemed apparent to me until I tried this grilled cheese–the combination honestly sounded a bit weird to me–but biting into it offered a wonderful mix of flavours that is definitely worth sampling.

Hula Girl Espresso was also on hand to offer samples of their butter coffee and their Crowbar pastries, which are essentially croissants filled with chocolate bar pieces–Reese Peanut Butter Cups, Mars Bar, Kit Kat, or Caramilk. All of the combinations work perfectly, and for a sweet treat, they all pair very well with the sweet but mildly caramely butter coffee.

Coco’s Fried Chicken

However, the most interesting restaurant offerings at the CNE would have to be Fran’s Restaurant, which makes their debut at the exhibition with a stellar, but simple, home-cooked, stylish menu. The highlight is their Thanksgiving Waffle, which is a waffle made out of stuffing, topped with cranberry sauce, turkey, and gravy. It’s simple, but delicious, and as Fran’s Restaurant chef Zaki Choudhary said when I spoke to him at the event, it’s a simple recipe that you can make at home, but it tastes especially great as Fran’s has prepared it.

Fran’s is also serving up spicy peanut butter Sriracha bites, and a cheesecake milkshake (they also have an apple pie milkshake). The milkshake goes perfectly with the Thanksgiving Waffle, and it’s about as fantastic as the name suggests–yes, cheesecake in a milkshake goes together perfectly.

Check out the gallery of photos from the media preview, and watch for more coverage of the CNE right up until Labour Day.
