Goodbye Venice, Hello Toronto

As we say “ciao” to Venice (sorry), we now have the Toronto International Film Festival to look forward to. Natalie won’t be there in person but “New York, I Love You” will be shown in an unfinished state. Not only is she acting in Mira Nair’s segment but has directed a segment herself.

The word out of Venice was that Eve was very promising. Now it’ll be interesting to see if her NYILY segment can match it. One things for sure, we’ll get more proper reviews out of Toronto.

The film has public screenings on Saturday and Monday. I don’t know if tickets are still available but you can try over here. If you do manage to go we’d definitely love to hear what you thought.

Wrapping things up, The Star spoke to a number of films journalists about what films they were most looking forward to at the festival. NYILY got a couple mentions.

Steve Almond – “It’s a work-in-progress screening, but with so much talent involved it should be on track to mirror the success of Paris, je t’aime.”

Ray Yick – “A star-studded cast with a long list of renowned directors shot in one of the most loved cities in the world. What more can you ask for?”
