The Toronto International Film Festival

Toronto Film Festival 2019

The Toronto Report 2019

Cinemark Goes to The Toronto International Film Festival

By Cara West/CinéArts (10/11/2019)

One of the most highly anticipated film festivals of the fall, The Toronto International Film Festival took place from September 5-15 and CinéArts was there! This festival is a great preview of the top films in our theatres this fall and winter, and also a good look at who will be contending for Academy Awards in the spring. Here are some of the highlights from this year’s TIFF.

Ford v Ferrari

Racing cars for a living may be a noble pursuit or absolute folly but it sure as hell is exciting. In this follow-up to his superb Marvel reinvention, Logan, director James Mangold tells the tale of real-life superheroes Carroll Shelby and Ken Miles. Mavericks of the first order, Shelby and Miles commandeered the resources of the mighty Ford Motor Company in the 1960s to go head-to-head with the gods of Italian auto racing. With standout performances from Matt Damon and Christian Bale, this story makes for one of the most electrifying films of the year.

A Beautiful Day in the Neighborhood

A Beautiful Day in the Neighborhood

What is it about Tom Hanks? He's acclaimed for his stunning character transformations, from Big to Cast Away to Saving Private Ryan and beyond. But he's beloved because something about him always stays the same. Hanks' screen persona is an unerring force for good, which prompted a universal sigh of relief at his casting as America's treasured children's TV host, Mr. Rogers. But A Beautiful Day in the Neighborhood is no simple paean to childhood comforts. Following up on last year's sharp comic drama, Can You Ever Forgive Me?, director Marielle Heller sets Fred Rogers' irresistible charm against the immovable cynicism of a New York magazine writer.

Joker

Shocking in its originality and intensity, Joker is a game changer for so-called comic book movies. Showcasing a fully immersed performance from Joaquin Phoenix and a new vision of world building, Todd Phillips' latest is an unsettling, exciting portrait of the villain we thought we knew.

Knives Out

Knives Out

On the morning after his 85th birthday party, wealthy crime novelist Harlan Thrombrey is found dead on his estate. Famed Southern detective Benoit Blanc (Daniel Craig) is enlisted on the case and suspects foul play. Everyone is a suspect and, as the reading of the will draws closer and the investigation heats up, Harlan's money-grubbing family begins to be revealed as far more conniving and competitive than they first appear. When Marta (Ana de Armas), Thrombrey's South American caregiver, finds herself entangled in the mystery, it becomes clear that no secrets are safe within the household — not even her own.

Jojo Rabbit

Jojo Rabbit

In a series of deft, groundbreaking comedies, Taika Waititi took sharp left turns into coming-of-age stories (Boy), vampire movies (What We Do in the Shadows), and even our sacred superheroes (Thor: Ragnarok). Now he brings his half-Maori, half-Jewish, fully skewed sensibilities to his most daring film yet. A dazzling takedown of fascist thinking and the violence it fuels, Jojo Rabbit begins in biting satire but delivers surprising emotional impact.

Tony-winning Broadway actor Cynthia Erivo stars in Kasi Lemmons' inspiring biopic about renowned abolitionist Harriet Tubman, who escaped slavery and risked her life to lead others to freedom through the network of safe houses known as the Underground Railroad.
