On a warm day earlier this month, I toured through the dusty crossroads of a medical facility in Kandahar, Afghanistan, and I didn’t even have to leave the streets of Toronto.
Toronto has seen a lot of film and television production over the last couple of years with new series being developed and shot here and then simulcast south of the border.
Available today on DVD and Blu-ray: director Alex Gibney explores the rise and fall of New York governor Eliot Spitzer in Client 9; Chloe Moretz and Kodi Smit-McPhee star in the horror remake, Let Me In; two people try to survive an alien wasteland on Earth in the drama, Monsters; plus a look at Never Let Me Go, starring Carey Mulligan, Keira Knightley, and Andrew Garfield.
Opening this week: Jesse Eisenberg stars in The Social Network, the story of the making of Facebook; and the horror-drama Let Me In stars Chloe Moretz as a twelve-year-old vampire making friends with her new next-door neighbour.
New arrivals on DVD and Blu-ray this week include the comic-book mashup, Defendor, starring Woody Harrelson; plus the 1960s rock comedy, Pirate Radio, with Philip Seymour Hoffman and Bill Nighy.
