Months of Meryl: THE RIVER WILD

"Great post and comments. Yes, Streep had to navigate the rough waters of being in her 40's! I do think she smashed through the glass ceiling for women since she persevered and then became an even bigger star in her 50's." - Sister Rona

"One of my favourite movies from my teen years - I'm shocked at how long ago this was released. It was Meryl that sold this movie for me and is the reason I saw it. At the time, and I still feel this way, she is the reason to watch and believe this film." -Filmboymichael

TIFF Award Winners

The list as they came in [thanks to The Lost Boy]

BEST CANADIAN FIRST FEATURE Edwin Boyd, directed by Nathan Morlando (Paolo's review, Amir's review)
BEST CANADIAN FEATURE Monsieur Lazhar, directed by Philippe Falardeau
BEST CANADIAN SHORT FILM Doubles With Slight Pepper by Ian Harnarine
PEOPLE'S CHOICE MIDNIGHT MADNESS The Raid, directed by Gareth Huw Evans
PEOPLE'S CHOICE DOCUMENTARY The Island President by Jon Shenk

And the biggie, the PEOPLE'S CHOICE AWARD, which often signifies Oscar attention in either Best Picture or Foreign Film categories is WHERE DO WE GO NOW? the musical from Lebanon which is from the director of Caramel. It was recently submitted for Oscar consideration for Best Foreign Language Film.

UPDATE: Here's the international trailer.

It's officially one to watch now, a very likely nominee if past awards are indication. Runners up in this category were Iran's very buzzy marital drama A Separation and Ken Scott's Starbuck

Im writing my review on where do we go now as i type this
I guess my 5 star vpte counted too haha
Its a total crowd pleaser and the instant it ended i put it down on my list of predictions
I never got around to writing about starbuck but that waz hilarious too
Nevertheless im kinda upset to see the iranian film come second but thats just my personal nationalist bias haha

'Where do we go now'? was nowhere on my radar and I saw 16 films at TIFF. But I'm glad a true art house indie unknown film won the top prize. Surely this helps its FL Oscar chances.

Amir beat me to Where Do We Go Now, or did he? Also I saw another movie today and I don't even know if I should write something about it.

Me too, Simone - this movie flew so far under my radar that I didn't even know it existed. And while waiting in line for my last movie of the fest tonight I asked a half dozen other people if they'd seen it - and to a person the response was not "yes" or "no," but "what is that?" ha! anyway, definitely need to catch up with this at some point.
