It’s taken me several days to get a handle on TIFF this year. Between back to school hectic-ness and life in general, I’m afraid TIFF has had to take a back seat for MOAM! But fear not, loyal readers, I still have updates for you!
How do you top Brangelina/Clooney/U2 Friday? With Canadiana Saturday. Cronenberg’s “A Dangerous Method” followed by Sarah Polley’s “Take this Waltz”…
…The U2 doc, “From the Sky Down” was being screened, both at RTH and at the Elgin Theatre. And 2 of the 4 lads from Dublin were on hand to work the red carpet. And the stage.
I have seen the future of TIFF and its name is Bruce Springsteen. Obviously I am not MOAM. I’m no Mother, but make no mistake: I am a Maven. It’s me, the special guest blogger â€“ call me Mensch of all Mavens if you like. The arrival of Bruuuuuce put the TIFF in a tizzy […]
A funny thing happened on the way to the Green Room….They stopped everyone from going inside. EVERYONE. No photos. No hangers on. No nothing. Why? Because the star of a documentary, here to do press for the film, about him, vanted to be alone. Not Brangelina. Not a Royal or any other visiting dignitary. Not Bill Gates. No, they closed the Green Room for…. Bruce Springsteen.
POTICHE, which is Francais for Trophy Wife. And then there’s BLACK SWAN. Intense…and beyond.
Barney’s Version & The Housemaid…..
Night of a thousand movie stars – and something for everyone! From old school classics to tween starlets, the joint was jumping… Robert Redord’s The Conspirator and Ben Afflek’s The Town.
The King’s Speech: brilliant, brilliant and brilliant. Trust: Intense, emotional, raw. With a side of creepy.
For audiences living in Toronto, only one thing matters: TIFF. And for me, it’s all about who’s in the Green Room. Essentially a glorified waiting room, the Green Room is where the celebs and their peeps stop in to shmooze and grab a glass of liquid courage en route from red carpet to Gala stage. This year finds stale popcorn, ferrero roche truffles… and me!!
