Saara Chaudry is just 13 years old, but she’s already got the charisma and intelligence of an actor twice her age, which might be why director Nora Twomey chose the young star to play Parvana in the animated adaptation of The Breadwinner.
Anne Winters surprised more than a few people when she dropped by The GATE’s Interview Lounge at TIFF 2017. Winters has stopped by to talk about the horror film Mom and Dad, but when I asked for a demo of her “horror movie scream” even I was surprised. Luckily no one called the cops on us.
Getting ready for a little speed. The Fate of the Furious is out now on Blu-ray, and The GATE is giving away five copies to fans who want to see Dom behind the wheel again.
Movie scores are magic. Most of the time, we only experience that spellbinding effect from the other end of a speaker, months or even years after the orchestra has recorded them.

Hailing from Toronto’s own Cabbagetown neighbourhood, I recently had the pleasure of sitting down with Canadian film and television legend Ted Kotcheff.

What is it like becoming a Power Ranger? When I asked three of the stars of the Power Rangers how it felt to jump into the costumes, Dacre Montgomery, Naomi Scott, and Ludi Lin, admitted that it hadn’t really started to sink in yet until they were promoting the film.
What did it take to bring enforcer Doug “The Thug” Glatt, played by Seann William Scott, back to the ice? The actor sat down with me recently to talk about the hard-hitting sequel Goon: Last of the Enforcers, and it came down to that one important starting point for any film: the script.
