WE WISH WE WERE SEEING

august

  • AUGUST: OSAGE COUNTY: Based on the critically acclaimed, award-winning play and starring cinephile faves Meryl Streep and Julia Roberts, August is one of the most talked-about films of the fest this year. We all want to see it. Really, we do. (6:30 p.m., Roy Thompson Hall)
  • THE HUSBAND: This flick isn’t on many people’s radars but for fans of Canadian director Bruce McDonald, it’s an obvious pick. This dark comedy is about a father’s struggles raising his young son while his wife is in jail. (7:30 p.m., Scotiabank 1)
ALSO PLAYING

Cory Monteith

  • MCCANICK: Intense and dramatic, this is one of the two films starring the late Cory Monteith at TIFF this year. (7:15 p.m. Scotiabank 3)
  • THE INVISIBLE WOMAN: Directed by and starring Ralph Fiennes, this film is about Charles Dickens and a secret affair. (6:00 p.m., Visa Screening Room [Elgin])
  • THIRD PERSON: From Paul Haggis, this movie intertwines the narratives of three different men across the world. (9:00 p.m., Visa Screening Room [Elgin])
  • BLOOD TIES: Part family drama, part cop drama, this remake of a French film stars a mega cast: Clive Owen, Billy Crudup, Mila Kunis and Marion Cotillard. (9:30 p.m., Roy Thompson Hall)
