Like the holiday season, the lead-up to the Toronto International Film Festival seems to start earlier and earlier if you’re a journalist in Toronto.
The questions seem to be endless. Yes, even at the Toronto International Film Festival, when enough press get together, there are always some truly cringe-worthy questions that come up.
