    From Bond Girl to Terrence Malick Muse: 'To the Wonder' Star Olga Kurylenko on Working With the Enigmatic Director and How the Film "Teaches Us A Lot About Love"

    Actors who worked on Terrence Malick's latest film, "To the Wonder," fall into two camps: those who made it into the final cut, and those who didn't. Luckily for Ukrainian-born actress Olga Kurylenko (best known for playing a Bond girl in 007's 2008 outing "Quantum of Solace"), she falls into the fo...

    TIFF Futures: 'No Place On Earth' Director Janet Tobias On Telling "One of the Best Stories I Ever Heard"

    As a woman who began her career as a journalist at 60 Minutes working for Diane Sawyer and Don Hewitt, it's safe to say that Janet Tobias is no stranger to a good story. You can imagine, then, how extra-ordinary a story must be for her to dub it "one of the best stories I had ever heard" - which she...

    TIFF Brody Diary 5: 'The Master,' 'The Iceman' 'The Impossible'

    A perfectly delightful rich full relentless festival day, except when I look back and realize that everything I saw was in English, which I find mildly embarrassing and slightly unadventurous on my part, especially when attending a festival screening over 300 films from 60 countries.

    TIFF Capsule Review: 'What Richard Did'

    “What Richard Did” follows a role-model athlete into a party, and after a violent drunken spasm of jealousy, a rugby teammate is dead. Director Lenny Abrahamson’s second feature shifts from a light airy palette on the beaches near Wicklow to darkening tones as his story devolves from jostling bonhomie into death and guilt. Newcomer Jack Reynor is Richard Karlsen, a team leader who can’t contain his surging emotions when there’s competition for dark-haired Lara (Roisin Murphy). After a brawl goes too far and the police investigate, omerta sets in among the mates who witnessed the fight, putting a few new wrinkl...

    TIFF Capsule Review: 'Foxfire: Confessions of a Girl Gang'

    The latest film from French auteur Laurent Cantet (the Palme d’Or-winning “The Class”) is set in an impeccably evoked small town in the U.S. of the 1950s, but the story set there involving the titular girl gang, which clocks in at a hefty 143 minutes, is dramatically repetitive and somewhat inert. For his adaptation of the Joyce Carol Oates novel, Cantet decided to work again with young, non-professional actors as in “The Class,” but to diminishing returns here. His lead, Raven Adamson, who plays the most daring of the girls and their de-facto leader, Legs, is appropriately spunky, but she’s surrounded b...

    Why 'To the Wonder' Is Terrence Malick's Most Accessible Work in Years

    "The Tree of Life" was the epitome of Malick's cosmic fixations, but the comparatively muted "To the Wonder" delivers a similar collage of memories and desires in more easily digestible fragments.
