Picks and Pans Review: Stargazing at the Toronto International Film Festival
For the packed 10 days (Sept. 10-19) that Toronto played host to Hollywood, movie stars zipped in and out of town at a dizzying rate. Big names who hyped their movies at the festival, which this year featured 300-plus films from 53 countries, included an unshaven Tom Cruise, who was there in his role as a producer of Without Limits; Drew Barrymore for Home Fries; Cameron Diaz and Christian Slater for Very Bad Things; Joan Allen and Jeff Daniels for Pleasantville; Meryl Streep for Dancing at Lughnasa; and Dan Aykroyd, Danny Glover and Jennifer Lopez for the animated Antz.
Family members who did manage to stage a reunion in Toronto were the Quinn brothers (actor Aidan, director Paul and cinematographer Declan), who proudly presented the film all three made together, This Is My Father, a moving romantic drama set in Ireland.
