Many of the festival's 366 films are now making their way into regular theatres for the viewing pleasure of the general public. Check out the latest edition of our weekly Film Roundup for a list of TIFF alumni films and more hitting theatres this week. Then, have a look at our Recently Reviewed section for more film reviews.
First up, following a well-received screening a TIFF, the Joseph Gordon-Levitt directed comedy Don Jon (pictured) hits theatres this week. Also serving as a the film's lead character, the workaholic actor's first foray into directing proves a successful endeavour.
Next up, starring Julia-Louis Dreyfus and the late James Gandolfini, Nicole Holofcener's film Enough Said offers smart and funny social observation, while in the world of music docs Metallica: Through the Never 3D features exhilarating concert footage that is somewhat unfortunately juxtaposed with a distracting fictional narrative.
Ron Howard's latest film Rush serves as a semi-biographical depiction of the rivalry between former Formula One drivers James Hunt and Niki Lauda. And finally, animated inventor Flint Lockwood returns to the big screen in Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs 2. With an all-star voice acting cast including Bill Hader, Anna Faris, James Caan, Andy Samberg and Neil Patrick Harris, the film thrills with witty animation and amusing imagery.
There are many more films where these ones came from, so check out our Recently Reviewed section for additional reviews.
