toronto film festival

Decided to go out last night anyway. :) We ate at Forkchops near Bloor and Yonge, then joined Craig and other friends at the theatre to see WAKING NED DEVINE. Really enjoyed this flick! Reminded me a lot of Local Hero. It should be coming out in regular theatres in late November; I'll probably go see it again. The Q&A session was great, both Kirk Jones (director) and Ian Bennan (sp? lead actor in the movie, played Robert the Bruce's evil father in BRAVEHEART) were highly entertaining. Craig ran into Drew Barrymore in the lobby! By the way, also enjoyed the movie I saw with Craig on Monday. It was renamed BESEIGED (formerly THE SIEGE) shortly before coming to the Festival because Bernardo Bertolucci found out that an action movie was coming out called THE SIEGE. Very unusual love story, like the last half more than the first half. Bernardo and his screenwriter wife gave a Q&A after. I believe that David Cronenberg was in the audience. I kind of regret only signing up for two films at the Toronto Film Festival...will probably sign up for more next year. Craig is going to be seeing about FORTY in ten days. His film festival reports (highly entertaining! even Ebert likes them!) will be posted on his website eventually.


Adam English is in town with a friend! Jodi and Allison are coming downtown and we're all going out for dinner.
