iW NEWS | Jeremy Podeswa's "Fugitive Pieces" to Open Toronto

The 2007 Toronto International Film Festival will open with the world premiere of Jeremy Podeswa‘s “Fugitive Pieces” on September 6th. Based on Anne Michaels bestselling novel, “Fugitive Pieces” tells the story of a man (Stephen Dillane) “whose life is haunted by his childhood experiences during the Second World War.” The film also features Rade Sherbedgia, Rosamund Pike, Ayelet Zurer, Robbie Kay, Ed Stoppard, Rachelle Lefevre, and Nina Dobrev. “From screening his short films, to his first feature “Eclipse,” to “The Five Senses,” the Festival is proud to have supported Jeremy’s career and extraordinary talent over the years,” said Toronto International Film Festival Co-Director Noah Cowan in a prepared statement. “We are honoured to have him open the Toronto International Film Festival with this touching and powerful film.” [James Israel]
