Published Sep 13, 2013The 2013 Toronto International Film Festival will sadly be coming to an end on September 15. Filmgoers in Toronto have shared a few laughs, shed some tears and spotted a celebrity or two over the course of the festival. So before the fest leaves Toronto for another year, check out some of our reviews of the films in this week's all-TIFF Film Roundup. Then head over to our Recently Reviewed section for the rest of our festival coverage.
First up, Mexican director Alfonso Cuarón, the man behind the third Harry Potter film, brings his 3D thriller, Gravity (pictured), to TIFF. The film, which stars George Clooney and Sandra Bullock, will tug at your heartstrings while offering subtle nods to 2001: A Space Odyssey.
Director Ned Benson plays with perspective in his two-part romantic drama The Disappearance of Eleanor Rigby: Him and Her, while Jeff Barnaby's horror flick Rhymes For Young Ghouls "announces the arrival of an exciting new voice in Canadian cinema," according to our reviewer.
Adapted from the Joyce Maynard novel, Labor Day, starring Kate Winslet, Tobey Maguire and Josh Brolin, finds director Jason Reitman heading in a more accessible direction. Meanwhile, Scottish director Kevin McDonald offers his own adaptation of a novel with the apocalyptic, WW3 thriller How I Live Now.
Finally, David Morse stars in the Josh C. Waller directed crime drama McCanick, which does the genre justice with its gritty, twisted plot.
