    TIFF 13- Dispatch 1: Mid-Life Women in Crisis

    This is my third Toronto Film Festival and I am starting to understand how to manage it. It is an endurance test. You need to go whole hog one day and then back off a little the next in order to make it a whole week. Also it takes a while to put into words what you are seeing.
