    TIFF Review: Catherine Breillat’s 'Abuse Of Weakness' Starring Isabelle Huppert

    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
