Ethan Hawke as Chet Baker in Born to Be Blue

‘Ville-Marie’, ‘Into The Forest’ & ‘Born to Be Blue’ highlight Canadian films at 40th TIFF

Throughout the forty years of the Toronto International Film Festival, the developing and fostering and incubating of Canadian films and Canadian cinematic talent has always been an important priority, and because of that this year's terrific line-up of Canadian films can be seen as a direct pay off of all those past efforts and the need to keep TIFF a Canadian film festival--one that celebrates international films and film culture probably better than just about any other festival in the world, while remaining still a Canadian film festival.
Benedict Cumberbatch in The Imitation Game

Benedict Cumberbatch on the life of Alan Turing and ‘The Imitation Game’

Alan Turing is one of the geniuses who helped bring an end to the Second World War, thanks to his efforts with early computer science that were used to decrypt Nazi communication, but his life was a mix of troubles and triumphs, to say the least. During an era when society was fanatically homophobic almost universally around the world, as a gay man--even one serving great science--Turing was ultimately given radical treatment as a punishment for his sexuality just a few short years after he helped serve his country.
Laura Dern as "Bobbi" in Wild

Laura Dern talks ‘Wild’, women in film, and Jean-Marc Vallée

Laura Dern is refreshing in almost every way--on screen and off. In her latest film, Canadian director Jean-Marc Vallée's Wild starring Reese Witherspoon, Dern plays a role that is tough and beautiful, with layers that add meaning throughout the story. Maybe best of all, the narrative is refreshingly different, with an ending that is happy, but not what you might expect.
