The Death and Life of John F. Donovan will premiere at the Toronto festival tomorrow. While we wait for another public appearance of Natalie, we are going to review what happened the last two days…

Hello Canada Magazine tell us how Natalie rapped at her TIFF after-party last Friday:

Natalie – who was wearing a sweet-as-can-be soft blush Dior couture gown – got her groove on as soon as the DJ started playing Cardi B.

-These two interesting articles analyze Natalie´s perfomance in Vox Lux, comparing it with those of Julianne Moore and Lady Gaga, who have also premiered films in the festival:
