Sony Classics showing nine titles at Toronto
One of the ongoing traditions of the Toronto Film Festival remained very much alive on Sept. 7, as the Sony Classics dinner at Creme Brasserie drew Daniel Radcliffe, Michael C. Hall, Felicity Jones, Ralph Fiennes, Jack Huston and Anton Yelchin.
“This is a great chance to catch up — and point out that we have nine movies at Toronto this year,” Barker noted.
That list includes “Kill Your Darlings,” starring Radcliffe and Hall, and Fiennes’ period drama “The Invisible Woman.” It’s also launching Jim Jarmusch’s “Only Lovers Left Alive,” India-set “The Lunchbox,” starring Irrfan Khan and Asghar Farhadi’s “The Past,” the Iranian director’s latest film after 2011’s Oscar-winning “A Separation.”
SPC is also screening a quartet of documentaries — including Penn and Teller’s “Tim’s Vermeer,” Alex Gibney’s “The Armstrong Lie,” Charlie Paul’s “For No Good Reason,” focusing on artist Ralph Steadman, and Frank Pavich’s “Jodorowsky’s Dune.”
