    TIFF Review: ‘X + Y’ Starring Asa Butterfield, Rafe Spall & Sally Hawkins

    There’s something impossibly charming about Morgan Matthews’ “ X+Y,” his debut as a fictional feature-length narrative director. Much like the film’s core message and encompassing theme, this charm doesn’t come with an equation that leads to an easy solution, which only amplifies our satisfaction th...

    TIFF Review: Chris Evans' Directorial Debut 'Before We Go' Co-Starring Alice Eve

    The plight of the actor-turned-director is an unpredictable one.
