    TIFF Review: 'Standing Aside, Watching'

    Toronto Review: 'Therese,' Starring Elizabeth Olsen, Oscar Isaac and Jessica Lange, Fails On Every Level

    It’s unlikely a filmmaker brought a more personal narrative project to the Toronto International Film Festival than Catherine Breillat.

    TIFF Review: Kevin Macdonald’s ‘How I Live Now’ Starring Saoirse Ronan, Tom Holland, & George MacKay

    Note the title, “How I Live Now,” and its absence of colons, commas, or other punctuation implying further installments—it’s the first sign of the crucial immediacy to Meg Rosoff’s 2004 YA novel, now brought to the screen by “Last King of Scotland” director Kevin Macdonald.
